Associated Press Mobile News Network: iPhone vs. Windows Mobile Format

AP News
The Associated Press (AP) launched what many are calling a mobile news site for the iPhone. And, while that is true, the site…

…is actually smart enough to reformat itself for other mobile form factors too. The image on the left above is a screen capture from a TyTn Pocket PC Phone Edition while the image on the right is a photo of an iPod touch viewing the same site. Once again, web designers have been able to create a great looking site and user experience (navigation is a breeze and even the video links work) for the iPhone (iPod touch in my case) while the web experience for everyone else is old school. That said, the AP Mobile News Network site is very usable on a Windows Mobile smartphone. It just isn’t as attractive as the version for the iPhone/iPod touch.
