I’ve always had the need to stay connected to the Web and E-mail while I’m on the go. This is especially true when I hit the mall with Tami and she’s taking forever to try on clothes! To pass time, I’ll flip out my
Palm Treo Samsung Blackjack cell phone and surf some of my favorite blogs to catch up on the latest news, or I’ll pop onto Kineda to see if any new comments have been added to my latest postings.
Although web standards have been gaining ground in the last few years, many websites still haven’t created a stylesheet specifically for mobile handhelds. I find this horrible in a day and age where almost everyone has a phone that’s web-enabled.
Some sites appear so jumbled they’re unreadable on my Samsung Blackjack which runs IE Mobile, while others render fantastically. The ideal situation would be for each site to develop a stylesheet and code set specifically tailored to mobile handhelds. Along with the handheld stylesheet, would be a strip down of heavy graphics, flash, and other unneeded features to create a slim and trim mobile site that would fit a 2 to 3 inch screen.
What would all this ranting be worth if I didn’t practice what I preach? Nothing of course. So, I sat down last night and created Kineda Mobile Edition! Now you can easily view the most recent postings in a simple list format, and add comments on the go.
I was reading the other day that the wireless services market will reach an estimated $698 billion in year sales by 2009 as mobile phones replace the PC as the primary communication device, according to the Yankee Group. This is an astonishing number that anyone trying to reach their maximum audience (especially the ones not glued to their desks) should really be paying attention to.
Now go out and enjoy Kineda wherever you’re at!
