Mobile Asia Congress is the perfect time for China-related announcements, specially since it’s held in Macau and it turns out that Microsoft will announce the availability of Internet Explorer 6 on Samsung Omnia. This handset is offered by China Mobile, the country’s largest carrier and Microsoft is probably trying to get on their soft side in order to reach the vast number of the provider’s customers.
How about Opera Mobile 9.5? This browser comes pre-installed on the handset and I don’t quite see any reason for replacing it with IE6. What’s in it for China Mobile?
