Looks nice, if it catered for the work-arounds, bugs and idiosyncrasies of browsers.

Owners of the only two Series 60-based smartphones on the market - the Nokia 7650 and 3650 - now have yet another browser to surf the full Internet with.
At the Symbian Exposium in London, UK, Opera Software yesterday launched yet another version of its browser for a Symbian OS based platform. Having already introduced versions for Nokia's Series 80 and the UIQ platform, the Norway-based company announced the immediate availability of its browser for devices based on Nokia's Series 60 platform"
Now, that's more like it.
"Besides the Nokia 9210i Communicator, Nokia has launched three other phones supporting XHTML. Those are the Nokia 6590 and Nokia 3590 for GSM 850/1900 networks and the Nokia 3585 for CDMA2000 1X networks in the US market. The Nokia 3585 has an operator choice of XHTML browser. The Nokia 6590 and Nokia 3590 have a dual-mode browser, which natively supports both WML1.x and XHTML Mobile Profile & WAP CSS. The XHTML Mobile Profile is a strict subset of XHTML 1.1, which includes all of XHTML Basic plus some additional elements and features from full XHTML 1.1. Therefore, all XHTML Mobile Profile documents are also valid XHTML 1.1 documents."
It's not clear what browser they're talking about, suspect it is Opera. Sounds like these two 6590 and 3590 are what I'm after. [Later... Nope, they've black and white screens, this article's from April 2002. So it's not Opera, but good history/background about the XHTML.]
"Content reformatting - Instead of presenting table content in columns and rows, tables are reformatted into a one-dimensional structure that better fits smaller screens. Opera can selectively scale down large images or remove those that are superfluous, as well as some other tricks that make the pages fit small screens. And as a result, the user has no need for a horizontal scrollbar.
Zooming - Additionally, Opera can zoom pages in and out, and this is a powerful way to get the overview of a complex Web page, while also being able to magnify certain parts of the page. Visually impaired users can zoom out on a page to achieve legible font sizes for reading. By reversing the operation, Opera can show a Web page written for desktop on a small screen."
Hmmm. The tables thing is a bit worrying. Zooming sounds wonderful.
Running on Linux... Getting more interesting. There's a review of the Sharp Zaurus SL-5000D. But it ain't a phone.
