Sources in Sprint have confirmed that LG is dumping their use of the Obgio web browser in favor of the Polaris web browser from Infraware.
Polaris appears poised to shake up the CDMA browser market…
However Infraware’s Polaris browser is also a newcomer, but has touted robust CDMA support. However, more importantly, it also adds advanced PC-level capacity to browsing. For example, Polaris supports RSS and AJAX, technologies rarely seen on even Smart Devices of today. While it is not known if LG will deploy these high-end features on their version of Polaris, it is clear that Poliaris will give the CDMA market some badly-needed improvements.
