Video: Microsoft Deepfish for Windows Mobile

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 30-Mar-2007 08:48

The Microsoft Live Labs are at it again... They have just announced a new paradigm for mobile browsing called Microsoft Deepfish. Is seems it works in a similar fashion as not much different from some other solutions, in which a server-side engine fetches and render pages, transferring an image of this page...

The following short movie shows how a page is rendered first in a completely zoomed out state. When you press the Action button the grey area will help you focus what area to zoom in and clicking the Action button again will enlarge that area.

Notice how the content is blurry after zooming in. Like some mapping technologies only the content needed to fill the screen is downloaded and cached, so the blur will go after a couple of seconds after you move to a new area in the page, giving way for a much better picture.

The product is currently on a semi-open beta. IT appears all the allocated slots for beta testers are taken, but you can register your interest on the research site.
