Quoting from the mobileOK Basic Tests 1.0
W3C Proposed Recommendation 03 November 2008

This version:
Latest version:
Previous version:

This document defines the tests that provide the basis for making a
claim of W3C® mobileOK Basic™ conformance and are based on W3C Mobile
Web Best Practices [Best Practices]. The details of how to claim
mobileOK conformance will be described separately. Providers of content
which passes the tests have taken some steps to provide a functional
user experience for users of basic mobile devices whose capabilities at
least match those of the Default Delivery Context (DDC).

mobileOK Basic primarily assesses basic usability, efficiency and
interoperability. It does not address the important goal of assessing
whether users of more advanced devices enjoy a richer user experience
than is possible using the DDC.
