WAP enabling

April 1, 2004 in the Nokia Mobile Browser Simulator is now WAP/WML enabled.

I’ve been wanting to provide a stripped down version of my site for mobile phone users for some time. It only makes sense that a wireless guy and J2ME evangelist would have a mobile version of his site, right?

I’ve tinkered with WAP-enabling little bits of my site before, but my blogification of finally gave me the means to do things right. Thanks to my favorite WordPress hack, WP WAP, you can now browse my blog from a WAP phone via:

(You can find this link in the future from the Other Formats and Syndication section in the right gutter.)

I’ve included a couple of screenshots of the mobile version of the site to give you a feel for how behaves on a WAPified gadget. When you first connect you’ll see a homepage containing a listing of recent blog entries as shown; select an entry’s title to load and read the entry. If you click on either of the provided screenshots, you’ll see what would happen if you selected the first entry to read.

Want to browse the mobile site yourself but don’t have a WAP phone? Download the Nokia Mobile Browser Simulator or use’s online Wapalizer or your WAP simulator of choice to open the WAP URL above. And if you do try out the site via WAP, please let me know what you think.

BTW, the main site is valid XHTML 1.0, so if your mobile browser supports XHTML, you may not even need to bother with the WAP version. in's WAP simulator

    mobile app Photo NewsReader ( – it’ll read any Atom or RSS
    feed and display associated photos formatted exactly to the size of the
    mobile display. It goes through a backend server which does the
    preformatting. It’ll also figure out the feed url from the web location of
    the blog. WAP is great – but I think J2ME with a server backend is
