Hi,
Althought I don't have/use a windows smartphone/pda... saw this and thought some of you guys might be interested.

The MiniMo project has been around for a couple of years already. Their first ports run on a Linux port based on a series of HP iPAQ h36xx Pocket PC. In the last couple of months the developers started working on a port to Windows Mobile.

The problem here is the bloat - while Pocket Internet Explorer is built-in the OS, and NetFront requires 7MB storage (including Java VM!), it seems that MiniMo requires around 30MB to show www.google.com - and this is probably one of the lightest pages on the Internet.

I still support NetFront, with tabbed browsing, Java VM, JavaScript, CSS, DHTML. A good alternative - still in the works - is Opera. I've used the Windows Mobile Smartphone version and it's nice.

Mind you, programming rendering for small devices is not easy task. Access and Opera have already invested time and resources on this.
