Novarra

Winner in: 2005

With the nWeb Browser, Novarra has given the “freedom of information” that the Internet is famous for and translated it to every cell phone on the market, allowing a true democracy of access. With nWeb Browser, Novarra was the first company in the world to offer Internet access to any mobile phone on the market, not just expensive PDAs or other high-end devices. Prior to this new technology, only the most basic Web sites, designed specifically for cellular phones, were available to all consumers, and the decision of which sites to view was left in the hands of the carrier. Now the nWeb Browser has returned control to the individual, allowing users to view any Web site and perform the same functions with a cell phone that they could with a desktop computer the platform automatically adapts full Web sites for display based upon a phone’s capabilities.
