View Full Version : Is IE on 2125 XHTML Compatible?

03-09-2006, 02:43 AM
I have a 2125 and want to use google mobile for image searches and whatever. I figured that since it is a pretty new device that IE would be able to read xhtml but when I try to go to google mobile, it gives me the wml version which won't let me search photos. Can anybody help?
Thanks Y'all

Seems to work fine. Have you tried it?

*point at the newbie and giggle* :lol: WELCOME, We're quite the crew.

PIE == Pocket IE. The common acronym for the Pocket PC bastardized version of Internet Explorer. Bastardized because, IMHO I feel they really striped it too far - especially when you see the alternative products on the market. Also, make sure you check out the post on Google mobile products for the browser, mail, etc.

Google Mobile is a Google product supporting mobile platforms for HTTP, Mail, etc. It will take a website and reformat it for a mobile device screen. It has its plus and minuses - check this thread ( http://www.smartphonethoughts.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=10496&highlight= )

You can also look at multiple addons out there (just search the posts) or alternative browsers such as Opera (http://www.opera.com/products/mobile/products/

thanks guys, I appreciate the welcoming responses. Only thing is I still am not understanding why my IE doesnt show the xhtml version of Google mobile, just the wml version. Do I have to buy a different browser? Its pretty new and just seems like it should support xhtml. Any thoughts?
Thanks again, nice to meet you all.

Try this:
www.google.com/xhtml from your cell phone.

I tried that and it comes back as not found. hmmm, are there plugins that I could get to make this work?

No plugins are necessary.

I can only now assume you have your PIE or GPRS configured wrong and are using WAP to browse, not GPRS.

Contact your carrier for the correct connection settings or google "< your carriername> GPRS settings"

I am on an old MPX220 Wm2003 and have no issues at all via AT&T/Cingular

Ok I got it, it would seem as though it is case sensitive or something. Oh well, thanks for all your help guys.
