Check out this blog post from SkyFire.

With yesterday’s news that Apple has approved OperaMini as a browser in the iPhone app store, competition in the mobile browser space took a big step forward.

cnet story on Opera Mini

Everyone at Skyfire was heartened by this decision by Apple, to open up their platform and believe this sets a solid precedent for additional innovation in mobile browsing from other companies.

Skyfire believes this approval is a solid first step and there’s still major consumer demand for great rich media and video browsing on these devices. Our philosophy is that enhanced speed AND all the rich media of the web can be together in one browser.

The Skyfire team has been watching the Opera submission and the iPhone/iPad market closely, and this will certainly accelerate our strategy on iDevices. Nothing to announce now, but stay tuned for news. If you want to stay updated, please follow Skyfire on Facebook or Twitter and be the first to hear.

Congrats again to Team Apple and Team Opera, you made the consumer the biggest winner this week.

You know what this means, right? iCraps are going to get Flash. Yes I now they didn’t say they’re devoted the entire team to it, but it’s pretty clear that ‘i’ is in their future.
