Does Ish work on a mobile?

Tomorrow's World was a show on BBC TV about innovations and tech stuff and I thought a good name for our computing and tech section.

Just wondered if you can still see the forum and the main site on a mobile phone? Does it work ok?

Tried in Dartmoor (to get in touch with Red) but it didn't really work. Didn't try looking at the forum though, just went to PMs, and couldn't sign in or read anything properly. The patchy signal and the fact that I might have tried the wrong password didn't help though....
They're not weeds - that's a habitat for wildlife, don't you know?

Do most sites take a long time to load on the DS?

yes, but ish is slower than gmail which takes twice as long on the DS than it does on my PC.

ive been using it on a nokia 6120c on t-mobile web n walk package for over a year and it works perfect. Using it this way right now on top of downloading and speed is fine! And i do not have 3g only gprs. Can even post photos.

When i have enough power to run laptop. I run linux version ubuntu 8.04 hardy heron and surf online with phone as a modem using gnome-ppp app. With the added memory power and cache, its like using ish on broadband!

Identical to a pc using the iPod touch but this works through wireless and not sap. Works perfectly tho.

I can get it on my mobile, read it on the bus on my way to work in the morning!

Can be a bit slow but I guess thats more to do with network coverage than anything else.
