U.S. Sites Need to Become More Mobile Browser Friendly

David: Yes, U.S. sites have a long way to go in terms of creating mobile friendly sites. However, I think that if mobile platform designers provided better mobile browsers, we’d have an easier time to “meet in the middle”. The Apple iPhone Safari browser demonstrated that people in the US will browse the web from their phone in large numbers with a decent browser. That, in turn, inspired many website to fit the sites better specifically to the iPhone. Browsers have been running on Windows Mobile, Palm OS, and Symbian S60 (Nokia) for many years now. But, the user experience provided by them were so disconnected (one might say broken) from their desktop experience that most people chose not to use them. I think it is important for people like you and me to let site owners know if we would like to get a better mobile browsing experience. And, if they already do so, to let them know we appreciate their effort. And, yes, I’ve asked MediaBistro about a mobile browser friendly experience too 🙂
