Looks useful…

Posted in Uncategorized by Simon Bisson on October 23, 2005

LiveJournal has launched a new Mobile site scheme – which includes a useful summary friends view.

At first glance there’s a lot of unnecessary page furniture removed, giving you a small, fast loading page. I thin it will be useful for checking things on my phone on the road (beyond the custom view I put together a couple of years back after tweaking one that had been made available for general use). I suspect it may also be useful for quickly checking and updating without getting in the way of work…

(Though the new T-Mobile MDA Pro I’m playing with at the moment is a GPRS/3G/WiFi device with rather nice 640×480 display, which seems to work quite well with standard LJ themes. The browser in Windows Mobile 5.0 is a huge improvement over mobile browsers I’ve used in the past.. However this new view does seem tailored for the Blackberry 7100t I’m also using. At the moment I seem to be able to put more phones on the table than my friend Chris, what with those two, the O2 iMode NEC, my regular SPV C500 on Orange, a Nokia 3230, an O2 X4, an SPV M2000, and the iMate JAM. Yup, my very own mobile data test lab…)

    If it did friends-groups I’d actually find it useful. As it is, I haven’t been to my vanilla friends page in about two years.

    I suspect using LJ’s standard URI extensions for filters will work…

    Now that is pretty damn sweet. I have been wondering about it really, which phones are better for online service and how well and fast they worked.
