In England there are several shops on the high street which sell
mobile devices such as:

* Handset manufacturers - Nokia, Sony, Apple
* Operators - Vodafone, O2, Orange, T-mobile
* Independent retailers like Carphone warehouse, Phones 4 U,  Currys & like wise

Only recently I've noticed that some stores allow you to surf the Web
on your devices, such as the Nokia flagship store in Regent street,
London. Perhaps your local mobile shop now offers a similar service?

Where shops do not offer this facility, please take a moment to
politely request Internet access in order to test mobile browser on
your favourite Web applications.

And what test should you use? Try the
http://www.w3.org/2008/06/mobile-test/ and please try submit results.

Be aware that some shops seem to operate odd policies when it comes to
photographing the device.

There are many different mobile devices with many different features
to choose from. Please make a good quality Web browser be one of them!


Maybe I shouldn't name the stores?
