History
The first devices to run a mobile edition of UC were the Psion Series 5, Psion Series 5mx, Psion Series 7, and then Psion netBook. They ran UC Mobile 3.6, released in 2000. UC Mobile was ported to the Windows Mobile UCting system in 2003.

Version 6.0 was the initial release. On June 25, 2003, the first update came in the form of version 6.01, which was a minor update, mainly correcting bugs.

Version 6.10, released on October 27, 2003, introduced several user interface and usability improvements, considerably optimized

performance, and slightly improved page rendering. It was also the first version to support proxy servers, WAP pages, and the first one to be released in localized versions for 9 different languages.

On July 13, 2005, almost two years after the previous iteration, version 8.0 was launched. This version was the first to require Symbian OS 7 (previous ones could function in Symbian 6.1). This version introduced the UC Mobile Accelerator, a technology that used an UC-run external server to slim-down the pages' content to reduce the traffic to the phones. This was also the first version to support dynamic HTML, and greatly improved compatibility with several web standards.

On November 14, 2005, version 8.5 was introduced. This version introduced password management and form auto-filling functionality, added some more languages for localized versions, and made some improvements to stability and reduced-screen rendering quality.

On April 5, 2006, version 8.6 was released and was also the first version to support Symbian OS 9. New to this version is the ability to support multiple browsing windows, support for Scalable Vector Graphics, introduction of URL autocompletion as well several changes in the customization aspect. It was also the first version of UC Mobile that allowed for the possibility to configure it as the device's default browser, allowing for it to be launched whenever a web page was requested to be opened.

Version 8.65 was released on August 29, 2006, which was mostly a welcome makeover and optimization to the then considered mature 8.60.

On February 5, 2008, UC Mobile 9.5 was announced and has been given several estimated release timeframes, each of which has been silently ignored with a new one being set after it. An initial beta version of UC Mobile 9.5 was released on July 17, 2008, although the only platform supported by this version was Windows Mobile.

Windows Mobile. It also adds support for Windows Mobile Standard (non-touchscreen) handsets.

On May 11, 2010, UC labs released a preview build of UC Mobile 10 for Maemo.
