The team behind mobile browser Skyfire, which is available on Windows Mobile and Symbian handsets, has written a blog post congratulating Apple and Opera, and talking a little about their own development of software for the platform.

The post says: "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".

The company stopped short of 100% confirming that will one day definitely be a Skyfire browser on the iPhone, instead saying: "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".

So if you tried out Opera on the iPhone, but it wasn't your cup of tea, then be heartened that there's other developers out there that want to make your browsing experience better. More when we get it.
