TouchBrowser for Pocket Internet Explorer launches

A new mobile phone application from Makayama has launched that lets you get iPhone-style internet browsing on your Pocket PC.

TouchBrowser lets you control everything using only your fingers. You can type using the large keyboard, "glide" through web content and scroll through pages with a flick, with full page view, the company says:

"Forget about the stylus, the tiny scrollbars and the keyhole view of the internet. TouchBrowser gives you the smooth webbrowsing experience of the iPhone, right on your Pocket PC. It lets you scroll pages with animation and iPhone inertia effects for easy reading."

You can use your finger to move the webpage around the screen, while websites designed for mobile use can be watched in "mobile view" and full pages in "desktop view".

Available now for phones running Pocket PC 1.0, the application is $14.95 or €11.95, which is between £7.50 and £9.50.
