Wow... Great find guys... I didn't think we'd have a beta release for about a week yet!!

I am hazarding a guess at it being VGA only as the beta was marketed for the Touch Pro...

After having a quick fiddle with it...

I can confirm there is no SIP!!!

That must be the reason for using the Touch Pro to release the BETA on.
Anything without a hardware keyboard has no way to type inside Fennec that I can see at first glance. If someone finds a way to - Please correct me.

It runs rather sluggishly on my Diamond also. Seems a bit unoptimized?? Either that or it wants the extra RAM the TP has...?

I have one word to describe this build: Ouch.

They have a LONG way to go before they have a functional browser. This is awfully slow and I'm on a fairly well optimized Touch Pro. I don't even want to think about the start up times on a stock Fuze.
