Although the mobile Web still has its challenges, there's no doubt that lots of us are regularly using our BlackBerrys, Treos, Windows Mobile devices, and other smartphones to access mobile versions of our favorite Web sites. We're pleased to announce that you can now access a version of TechRepublic optimized for small screens.
Although I'm not a huge fan of reading the Web from my mobile phone — as you probably gathered from my recent post Five reasons why the mobile Web still doesn't work — I do have about 30 of my favorite sites bookmarked on my Treo 700 and I regularly use them in airports, taxi cabs, and occasionally while I'm pushing the cart in the grocery store.
Earlier this year, I compiled two lists of mobile sites that are worth viewing from the small screen:
- 14 Web sites worth bookmarking on your Treo, PDA, or smartphone
- Another 14 mobile Web sites worth bookmarking on your Treo or smartphone
I'm pleased to announce that you can now add TechRepublic to the list. The mobile version of TechRepublic can be accessed at:
TechRepublic also has a version of each of its blogs optimized for mobile screens. For example, check out the mobile version of Tech Sanity Check. Soon you will see a little phone icon on each of the TechRepublic blogs that links to the mobile version of that blog. Stay tuned.
