Nokia 9500 Web Browsing

Monday 7th March, 2005
Ended up in an online chat with a journalist today following his Nokia 9300 review on The Register.

He makes a lot of criticism of the phones online Opera web browser which I believe to be the same as that on the 9500, which I personally think is briliiant.

I decided to send along some screen shots for demonstration and thought they were worth posting here.

Click for full size pics.

By default, as you'll see above, the web page is pretty cramped on the screen.

A quick trip to the memu to enable the "Fit to screen" option.

You'll now see that Opera has rendered it much better and whilst reducing the fonts just slightly the picture has been resized dramatically.

Another trip to the "full screen mode" option enables the side bars to be hidden.

Bingo...one perfect web page. What's wrong with that? I even have a proper mouse pointer with which I can click hyperlinks.

Is this different on the 9300???  Apart from the fact that mine's got wi-fi and loads a billion times faster ;O)
