New Nokia Browser

I had the pleasure to take a test drive of Nokia’s new browser yesterday, while speaking at their XML conference. I just have to say — it’s good. If this technology gets into enough hands, it could really open up use of “The Web” from Mobile. The “back button” functionality is especially good — it lets you page back through a series of thumb-nail views of previous pages, which is a quantum leap beyond current user experience. I’m a bit less sure about the addition of the pointer — will adding a pointer to the mobile browser create a better or more confusing user experience over all, especially when users might be switching back and forth between mobile-friendly content and “raw Web” content?
