Your comment on 2.6 Device Limitations:
2.6 Device Limitations

The word \"Device Limitations\" is not right,

The main interest here, should be to to first make note of the fact that

mobile device, has an evolution which is very isolated from the evolution

the PC.

The mobile device was evolved from the Telephone, rather than the Desktop

PC. Hence, the mobile device as it currently exists, is an advancement of

Graham Bell\'s invention, rather than a downgrade of Charles Babbage\'s


Where it goes, from there, is an advancement to a cornerstone of the

virtual, online, World.

The mobile device is slowly becoming a key component of the wearable

computing phenomena, where multiple devices, will use the mobile device as

central point of control and storage.

Hence \"Differences between the mobile device and the computer\" would be

right word to use.

Working Group Resolution:
We think that device limitations is the correct way to make the contrast
between the capabilities of a mobile device and those of the desktop, for
an audience that is used to delivering content to desktops.


Your comment on 2.7 Advantages:
2.7 Advantages

A point to add:

The mobile is destined to be a universal point of data storage, and

execution, rather than a data creator. This is greatly due to the various

means of device-device communication available to the mobile, such as the

operator network, Wi-fi, Infrared, Bluetooth, audio ports and USB ports.

5.2.6 Access KeysAccess keys, should be made accessible, according to

prevalent usability standards.

One standard, would be that page up and Page Down keys, must be

hard-coded, to make navigation of a page, less arduous.

One suggested implementation, is to use a slider key for the volume,

the phone mode. Then, when the browser is activated, use the same slider

as a Page Up-Down key.

Working Group Resolution:
2.7 We're not clear that this is indeed an advantage that is relevant to
this phase of Mobile Web Best Practices.

5.2.6 We think this refers to the User Agent and hence out of scope of
this document.
