    Thanks for your interest in Skyfire. We’re still in the Private Alpha phase with Skyfire for BlackBerry. We appreciate all of the interest and requests from BlackBerry users dying to get a Skyfire browsing experience, but right now we have all of the alpha users we need. Of course, eventually, we will expand the program, but in the meantime we are focused on iterating with this alpha community on the BlackBerry Bold. Stay tuned and know that we’re working hard to get to an Open Beta for the BlackBerry as soon as we can. We’ll send you an email as soon as soon as it’s open to more participants.

    If you want to get on the roster to participate, you need to provide the following details to
    dburchell at skyfire . com

    • Preferred email address
    • Cellular carrier
    • BlackBerry model
    • BlackBerry phone number (to send you links to download)

    Thank you for your interest in Skyfire on Blackberry!
    Thanks,

    Skyfire Support


    Don't know the logistics of posting email address??

    beemik, Thanks for the info. We've been watching and waiting faithfully for a long time. The alpha version got leaked recently and, even though I am as eager to see Skyfire for BB, from what I saw of that it's better staying in alpha for now. I guess that's why they call it "alpha."

    Thanks for the info... I just emailed the address listed in the above post... hopefully I'll be added to the list. When the beta was leaked I was able to download and use Skyfire for all but 5 minutes... I loved what I saw when using it... can't wait for this to actually drop!

    That's a bit of a change from a few weeks ago. Skyfire was not happy about that leak. On the one hand, I can't blame them, but on the other it was a good chance to get some realworld feedback from a plethora of users.

    I got a response yesterday from the email address you have listed... they wanted to know my name and where I was from... not sure what's that's going to be used for but it sounds promising that I received a response.

    Maybe it has to do with licensing or copyrights in certain areas outside the U.S. Just a thought.

    I am very much looking forward to the GA release. I find the BB browser and Opera compliment each other's weaknesses, so I will use them each for certain sites.

    but it would be nice to get a single browser. with a tab view.
