Posted yesterday on the Microsoft Live Labs blog:

We are excited to announce public availability of the Deepfish technology preview from Microsoft Live Labs.  Deepfish is a new type of mobile information browsing experience, aimed at preserving the rich layout and full form of documents on mobile devices while providing novel ways of effectively navigating that content on small screens.

This looks pretty cool.  Basically, it enables you to see the whole page on your mobile device, and then zoom in on the part that you want to actually read.  That way you might get a feel for the page without the endless zooming you have to put up with now.

The blog post goes on to say:

The preview is available for download now for Windows Mobile 5.0+ devices.

However (emphasis mine):

There are a limited number of slots available, and they will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis.

The limited number seems to be down to zero.

Thanks you for your interest in Deepfish; At this time the tech preview has reached the limit of initially available installations. We will send you a notification if we make additional spots available at a later date.

Note: MS should put "Thank you", not "Thanks you".


UPDATE:  There's a good flash demo here.
