If you want to keep up on the latest with the World Cup 2010, Skyfire has your back. You can use the browser on Android, Windows Mobile and Nokia to watch live games in the palm of your hands.
To check out live games, highlights and analysis videos, just point Skyfire to http://www.futbol.univision.com/ and you’ll be able to track the goals on the go. The browser uses server-side technology to deliver high-quality video content (including those delivered in Flash) to your handset and my brief testing found the videos to be more than acceptable over 3G networks. The site is in Spanish, as is the video commentary, but die-hard aficionados already know what’s going on in those thrilling 1-1 matches. Skyfire said this is one of the few, free mobile ways to watch the games, as many other services will charge a subscription fee.
So, I’m not the biggest fan of footie out there, as I’m more concerned with how the Lakers will perform on Sunday but I know this is a massively important event around the world and that a lot of our readers love it. Skyfire’s not the only way to keep track of the games though, as the Associated Press has also released an app that will keep you up to date on the go.
BlackBerry users also have an app that gives live updates, scores, statistics, and even calendar integration. Android, BlackBerry and iPhone users on Rogers Wireless will be able to watch all 64 matches for free via the company’s mobile video service. This will also include the ability to pause and rewind videos, too. Cool beans.
If watching the games gets you all jazzed up, feel free to pick up GAMEVIL’s Soccer Superstars for the iPhone or iPod Touch. It’s a fun little game with anime-style graphics and even some RPG elements.
So, friends, who’s going to win the World Cup?
