serving library resources via phones

BBC article about use of net from cell phones says there's going to be a new domain starting next month -- .mobi -- that will be for sites that you can get over your phone and there will be a strict set of accessibility standards."

Go to this site to see what your web pages looks like on a phone http://emulator.mtld.mobi/emulator.php?. Oooh, the library catalog doesn't look good at all. I wonder what one of the library's portal channels would look like?

Could be a good Scrapple topic for Wednesday.

what kind of phone did you try? Scrapple looks great via David's Palm Treo, but won't load in my ancient, soon-to-kick the bucket phone
