Despite clearly being named by a neolithic tribesman it looks like this new wunder-browser might actually deliver some rather impressive  goods in terms of web-on-yer-mobile. If the hype is to be believed this really will be like the web but on your mobile. No really it will. Exactly the same. You might even be forgiven for thinking for a second that your mobile is really a PC and you've magically grown to giant proportions.

If it does work and doesn't require only the hugest of processors to run it, it will be pretty impressive. Particularly for opening up the kind of Flash based content which has hitherto been ever so slightly out of reach.

Still as usual the question is begged: is this really the right approach? What about services tailored to small screens? Things that actually make more sense on the move then they do at your desk.

It's the web on your mobile, but also that's all it is.
