Ready SIM is a relative new mobile service in the USA that I first read about in this Ars Technica article Ready SIM offers cheap, short-term, and disposable mobile service. When I needed a mobile solution for a trip to the USA recently I luckily remembered that article.
I have been working with targeted CSS in Drupal themes for modern mobiles like the iPhone for some time now. xdeb.org has implemented it since early 2009, incidentally at the same time I got my first iPhone. This approach has worked well but now with over a third (34 percent) of the visitors to xdeb.
The drupal.org web site, nice as it is after the redesign, is not a pleasure to access on a mobile device like the iPhone. In issue #951114: Mobile phone support (iPhone / Android) there are some discussions and suggestions how to improve this.
When I got my first iPhone two years back I adapted the theme here on xdeb.org to work better with it. I documented it in my post Make a Drupal theme look better on the iPhone. During the holidays I got to try out the iPad for a few days and found ways to make the xdeb.
Airtel in India has a nice offer with unlimited GPRS (actually EDGE in cities) for 474 Rs. (€7) per month for pre paid accounts. Perfekt when you like me are traveling for some time in the country and want to have a mobil Internet connection.
I’m using Safari on my iPhone to browse the web more than I thought I would. Mobil Safari display pages very much like Safari on Mac OS X so it mostly works really well. A web design however rarely works well on both a big computer screen and a small handheld screen, even a high resolution one like on the iPhone.
iPhone, den är precis lika rolig att använda som jag trodde! Saker jag verkligen gillar med telefonen: Skärmen, den enda skärm jag sett som kan jämföras är den på Sony PSP. Knapp för att växla till tyst läge. “Manner mode” kallas det i Japan och det är verkligen gott uppförande att inte störa sin omgivning med fåniga ringtoner.
Apple - iPhone, vill ha! Kommer till Europa i slutet av året så man får lov att bärga sig. Kolla in när Steve Jobs presenterar iPhone så kommer ni att vilja ha en själva också :-). Mobiltelefon + iPod + Internet pryl i en förpackning.
