Mobile browser visit

It’s amazing what you can find browsing through your HTTP access logs (I need to get out more, I know).

Check out this visit from a mobile phone, or something…

It’s a Nokia 6682 and there’s a mention of the Series 60, or S60, but I’m uncertain whether it actually is the KHTML-based browser or not. If it is that’s really cool. The same rendering engine I’m using to type this post is being used to access my blog from a mobile phone.

Think of the potential? What, with several_hundred_million mobile phones with full-on browsers set to ship this year alone, KHTML could soon become the most popular Web gazer on the planet! It would certainly dwarf Firefox’s “100 million downloads” that’s for sure. Not forgetting it’s already being used by Apple, as well.

As for “YahooSeeker”, hmmm, I’ll have to e-mail mobile-search-customer-care to decipher that one. Anyone from Yahoo! out there care to enlighten us?

  1. Most of the Series 60 phones ship with Opera out of the box, so it’s most likely Opera.

    Then again, your blog is aggregated on Planet Linux Australia, so there’s a high chance that someone who would read your blog there would care enough about freedom to install something KHTML based. 🙂
