Can anyone get this started? It won't run on my ZTE Blade (Android 2.1/MSM7227).

Screenshots would be nice, if anyone can get it running!

A couple of screens as requested:

First run:

Fugly fonts* when zoomed-out:

Crisp fonts* when zoomed-in:

No flash:

Performance was horrible on my Nexus One (Cyanogenmod Nightly clocked at 1036 MHz) and pinch-to-zoom was a kinda wonky compared to the default browser. Haven't tested addons, sync, etc yet and I don't think I will, everything was just too slow to bother. Hopefully they'll improve that and if you're lucky enough it might perform better on your device.

*Note that I'm using the new Ubuntu font instead of the default Droid Sans. Droid Sans might scale better when zoomed, although the Ubuntu font looks ok in the default browser even when zoomed out a lot. Anyway, don't take the font thing too seriously unless someone confirms it.

Hope this helped somehow.

Runs awesome on my vibrant

Layout is similar to dolphin HD with the swipe L/R for settings etc.

Scrolling is a tad glitchy having occasional hang ups

Pinch zooming is good but text takes a few seconds to re-render

Downloads are nicely handled too... I downloaded a 4.4 mb mp3 simply by clicking download no extra menus... It instantly puts a notification up that says it's downloading therm changes to let you know its done

So far so good for beta needs improvement but this is a huge leap from the alpha I tried a few months ago

Edit: found the minimal requirements page.

Not working on my samsung gt i5500 can be hardware requirements not satisfied, I have to search more about it.
