All Aboard the Internet. E to Go: The Internet in Your Pocket
Descy, Don E.
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v50 n2 p4-5 Mar 2006
Some remember when they accessed the Internet through the telephone on a 300-baud modem. It was slow and it was not easy, but it gave them a view of the world. Now there is the web, idiot-proof email, and practically unlimited wireless connectivity. Having gone from desktop computers to laptops, now a major push is moving connectivity into the palms of people's hands. All of the major sites--AOL, Google and Yahoo, to name a few--are offering downsized versions of their sites to make mobile computing truly mobile and fast. Users of BlackBerrys[TM], Treos[TM], cellphones, Palm Pilots[TM], and Windows Mobile[TM] can now read and write email, and search and see the web with their own choice of online devices. This article discusses different ways to view mobile web pages.
