Wii Browser Friday!!!
Well, it comes out Friday in Europe which means we should get it sometime this week, too (we both get updates and new channels around the same time). I can't wait!
"Rejoice, citizens of Europe, for Nintendo has revealed that a trial version of its Wii Internet Channel, courtesy of Opera, will be available to download from the Shop Channel starting this Friday, December 22.
Adding Flash-enabled web browsing capabilties to Nintendo's feature-burgeoning console, the trial version of Opera's Wii-specific browser is set to make way for a final version of the software next March. As previously promised, the Internet Channel will be free to all Wii users until the end of June 2007, after which it'll set you back a measly 500 Wii Points.
Scott Hedrick, executive vice president of devices at Opera notes, "Our software brings the power and reach of the Internet to the hottest video game system available. Wii's unique interface adds a new dimension to our browser, making it a useful tool that the whole family will enjoy operating with ease."
Keen-eyed Europeans will probably also have noticed that Nintendo launched its Wii Forecast Channel this morning too. The outlook for the rest of the day is 'moon'."
EDIT: It also says it on Opera's US site so that means it is coming out in the US that day, too!
OHH very nice, flash web browsing! dose it support Java ?
Yay :), now I just need to get Wireless internet(but my grandma has wireless and she lives close to me so who cares).
Lol, too bad it's just a "trial" of the browser, which means it won't be full featured yet. The full free release isn't until March. Kinda lame..
