Nokia has introduced S60 Browser 7.1. This new mobile browser is based on WebKit 525, and adds features and updates contributed by Nokia and other members of the WebKit open source community.
For developers the introduction of S60 Browser 7.1 delivers full support for Flash Lite 3.0. It also extends support for S60 Platform Services to selected S60 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 2 devices. The new browser is pre-loaded in these S60 3.2.3 devices: Nokia 6710 Navigator, Nokia 6730 classic, Nokia N86 8MP device, Nokia E52 messaging device, Nokia E55 messaging device, and Nokia E72 device. Other selected S60 3.2.3 devices will gain S60 Browser 7.1 through firmware updates.
Early versions of S60 Browser 7.1 were released without support for onKeyPress to capture select and navigation key events. For full details, see the Knowledge Base entry in the Forum Nokia Wiki: TSS001451 - Key event handling in S60 Browser 7.1 and S60 WRT 1.1. This omission affects both web and WRT widget code. Later versions of the browser will correct this omission.
