Skyfire Launches the First Flash Video Enabled Mobile Browser for Android
The first 'mobile browser for the Social Media generation' eliminates broken links from your Facebook stream, tracks Twitter buzz, and makes sharing easy
Mountain View, CA – April 29, 2010– Skyfire, maker of the award-winning web-browser for mobile devices, today launches Skyfire 2.0 for Android, making the mobile internet experience faster, Flash-enabled and fun, with media recommendations and social features. Skyfire is one of the fastest growing mobile browsers in the world, ranking in the top 10 all-time apps in the Nokia Ovi Store and Windows Marketplace.
Skyfire 2.0 for Android is built upon many of the popular features of Skyfire's 1.0 browser, and uses cloud computing to give a "booster engine" to mobile phones so they can handle rich media like video. And now, Skyfire 2.0 for Android takes mobile browsing to a new level with the addition of the SkyBarTM, a new toolbar that lets users enjoy millions of videos previously unviewable on mobile, and also discover the latest buzz on any topic they browse.

All good things must come to an end and so we come to the end of the Official HTC Incredible Thread.
I'm sure i'm not alone when i say that it has been an "incredible" journey filled with valuable information, exclusive leaks, amazing personalities, a plethora of topics, countless CSR/store stories, endless theories/speculation, even newly forged friendships, all culminating in the release of a phone that we will all enjoy and remember as the catalyst for the epic thread.
I want to personally thank the hundreds, if not thousands, of contributors of this thread for the posts and contributions...you're the reason this thread was as "viral" as it was.
Special thanks and admiration goes out to some of our most active and devoted thread participants for their efforts, in no particular order and not intended to leave anyone out, Steven58, Montana Man, Kappy, Nashdroid, woodraskam, Nocturnal Jazz, NKT, kcoan3, CaptJager, etc...AMAZING JOB GUYS/GALS!
None of this would be possible without the ownership and staff of Phandroid/AndroidForums who supported us through trials and tribulations (thread closures, "strong" personalities, watermarking issues, etc...). So lets hear a round of applause ("Thanks!") for Rob (owner), Phases and Shivers316 (admins), twospirits, vido.ardes, and Slug (moderators). Thanks a bunch guys, keep up the great work!!!
We wouldn't be where we are without the information provided by our countless tipsters, insiders, informants, etc... so to all the silent warriors out there who prefer to stay in the shadows your assistance and devotion is truly appreciated and invaluable, KUDOS! (just remember, there is life beyond the Incredible and your information continues to be very valuable... Anonimac@gmail.com )
As i've said before, this is not the beginning of the end, merely the end of the beginning and the next set of exciting challenges lies ahead of us. Here are some of the steps that have already been taken for the next chapter:
1. A new sub-section (Tips and Tricks) has been created. I'll post some guidance in that section so we can make the most of it. 2. A new Lounge thread has been created with a similar goal/charter and this thread...enjoy! (i'll see you there) 3. An IRC chat channel has been created if you want more real-time conversation and advice from some of the "regulars". You can use an IRC client or simply navigate your web browser to: http://webchat.freenode.net/ and join the channel ##DroidIncredible
We will continue to evaluate the need for other sub-sections (Root, Custom ROMs, etc...) and stickied threads. Also, stay tuned for other site-wide developments...there is some exciting stuff planned!
In closing, thanks again to everyone who has been with us on this thread and helped make it what it is...the next challenge awaits!
When the HTC Droid Incredible launched in spring of 2010, it quickly became one of Verizon's hottest Android phones ever. Sporting many of the same features as its cousin, the Google-branded Nexus One, the Incredible features a 1GHz Snapdragon ... Read More
