Experience Full-Fledged Web Browsing on Low-end Mobiles With BOLT

Written By Sam on 5 September 2009

If you are not happy with the built-in browser that had come with your mobile then you can try out BOLT. BOLT is a full-fledged free mobile browser that offers fast, efficient and feature-rich way to enjoy full PC-style web pages and rich media applications on even lower-end mobile phones. BOLT is built on the Bitstream’s ThunderHawk browsing technology and provides you optimize usability, speed and performance on resource-constrained mobiles with limited memory, processing power and screen space. I installed it on my Nokia 5800 XpressMusic Mobile and found it to be good though not as great as the Opera Mini.


BOLT offers rich browsing experience even on entry-level mobile phones with Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP) 2.0 support. BOLT supports streaming videos, RSS feeds, social media sites, Google Maps and many more.
