Default W3C Launches the Mobile Web Initiative

http://www.w3.org/2005/05/mwi-pressrelease

"Today, at the WWW2005 Conference, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) announced the launch of the Mobile Web Initiative (MWI) - an endeavor to make Web access from a mobile device as simple, easy, and convenient as Web access from a desktop device... Many of today's mobile devices already feature Web browsers and the demand for mobile devices continues to grow. Despite these trends, browsing the Web from a mobile device -- for example, to find product information, consult timetables, check email, transfer money -- has not become as convenient as expected. Users often find that their favorite Web sites are not accessible or not as easy to use on their mobile phone as on their desktop computer. Content providers have difficulties building Web sites that work well on all types and configurations of mobile phones offering Web access. W3C has launched the Mobile Web Initiative to make browsing the Web from mobile devices a reality."

It's good to see some organized effort to have web sites more accessible and mobile format friendly. This is especially needed for sites that deal with finding things like restaurants, movies, airline schedules etc. These simple tasks can be agonizing on a smartphone's tiny display if the web page is only available in PC type format.
