Verizon Wireless Confirms New Browser Headed To Handsets

Verizon Wireless has been putting a new mobile web browser onto its feature phones from technology partner Novarra. Novarra's browser replaces the Open Wave browser that's been on Verizon's phones for years. The Novarra browser uses a proxy to re-render web sites for consumption on mobile phones. The result is a much more PC-like browsing environment, with richer graphics, Flash support, and e-commerce support. Verizon said the new browser will also become available to smartphones over time. Verizon Wireless said it will have more details about the browser soon.
