Opers Mobile 9.5 is one of the many highlights of the HTC Touch Diamond. Opera first announced the broswer this past winter, right around the same time the skyfire browser was first spotted. Opera 9.5 has quite a few advantages over the current standard WM browser which include: Context-sensitive zooming, Quick page rendering, Flash Lite 3 support, Tabbed browsing, and a whole lot more.
Opera 9.5 offers a unique advantage over Skyfire since the webpages are not rendered on a server and then streamed to your device. This allows for a more traditional web user experience with the capability to select, copy, and paste text from inside the browser.
For those of you who are planning on picking up the HTC Touch Diamond when it launches, you will be the first to get your hands on the new Opera browser. Unfortunately, Opera still has not released a launch schedule for the software. Lets hope Opera 9.5 will launch by mid July and like previous versions of the software, it should cost around $28.
HTC unveiled their latest upgrade to their TouchFLO software which they released last year on the HTC Touch. TouchFLO 3D (previously code named Manilla) offers an extensive user interface upgrade to Windows Mobile and offers a unique 3D graphical experience.
On the HTC Touch Diamond, the TouchFLO 3D software can be used with finger gestures as well as the scroll wheel. TocuhFLO 3D offers an interactive home screen that allows you to easily scroll through your contacts, pictures, music, and calendar.
It seems like the developers over at www.xda-developers.com have given us yet another great application. S2P (Slide2Play), developed by A_C gives Windows Mobile uses a music experience that comes close to that of the iPhone and the iPod Touch. S2P supports WMA, MP3 and WAV files with its own Cover Flow insired album navigation.
By far, S2P is one of the most intuitive media players to date for Windows Mobile. A few main features are still missing, such as playlist support and song duration. A_C has assured the xda-developers community that these features should be implemented shortly with a new release.

It seems Microsoft has finally chosen to add support for Adobe Flash Lite in Windows Mobile Devices by licensing the software. Silverlight 1.0 for Windows Mobile 6 won’t be available until the second quarter, Microsoft has said. Microsoft introduced Silverlight last year as an alternative for flash, but developers are still opting to use Flash in their web development since silver lite is still new and unproven. "Bringing Flash Lite and Reader LE to the Windows Mobile experience will give consumers more of their favorite Web sites on the go," said John O’Rourke, general manager for Microsoft’s Mobile Communications business unit, in a statement.
Flash Lite will give WM devices access to dynamic content on the web for the IE web browser and also could be used to enhance user interfaces in applications installed on WM devices.
