    The mysteries of mobile data plans or It’s all about Page Weight

  • So I have to make a confession (seems like I’ve been doing that a lot recently…) For the first time in my life I received a mobile phone bill with data charges on it. What you say? Are you some sort of imposter? Have you not been using mobile data all these years? Well, here’s the thing: I’ve been using it for free (we’ll, it’s all been on the company’s dime that is) so it never really hit me how much it really cost.

    The Mobile Web is alive and well in Startup Land

  • dotMobi was at CrunchLudd last night and we got to talk to plenty of cool web startups from Dublin. I'm imagining there might have a similar event 12 years ago for print, media, graphic design and CD-ROM startups. And a ranting sponsor (who perhaps looked a bit like me) from the fledgling Internet industry kept telling them that the web would soon change their world.

    An "essential" document for mobile web designers

  • We've often maintained that 2008 will be the official "Year of the Mobile Web". But I've always thought that it's also the year when it comes out of the technical shadows - and web designers start to take it seriously. Mature mobile web design has been a long time coming, of course held back by usual gripes like browser capabilities, device diversity and network speeds. But life moves on, and now it's time to make the mobile web look amazing.

    dev.mobi goes Wordle

  • If you haven't seen Wordle, go take a look: it's a fun, pretty tag cloud generator.Here's how the front page of dev.mobi looks: Apart from the cricked necks here at dotMobi towers, it's nice to see some of the subliminal messages. "Blog with mobile!"

    Ready.mobi v2.1.1 is live

  • You can probably guess by the version number 2.1.1 (from 2.1), there is nothing ground-breaking in this release. Just a few more bug fixes. In particular we have fixed a bug that caused the use of multiple <hr/> tags in your markup to reduce your overall score.

    RIP Openwave Mobile Browser

  • So as we all get spun up in the excitement and wonder over iPhone 2.0, and as Apple appears to continue its ascendancy in the mobile space, I feel compelled to share about a company that’s gone in the other direction. I don’t know if folks don’t care, or there really isn’t any impact as a result of it, but either way I feel inclined to spend some pixels on a recent development.

    240x320, the new standard screen resolution

  • I've had this theory for the last few months, and so I've decided to put it to the test. Today, most of the new phones you can buy have a screen resolution of at least 240x320 and are fully web xHTML (WAP 2.0) capable. When I see all the new models constantly coming to market, it's clear that the common screen width is definitely shifting to 240x320 pixels.

    Cookie Support, and Mobile Devices

  • If you're a regular on the site, you'll have noticed that we have been hard at work creating a new Test Suite that will play nicely with DeviceAtlas. During its development, I've had to put up with a ridiculous amount of obscure problems, but there's one that continually rears its ugly, ugly head and makes life hell for me. Cookie support. Or lack of it.
