Default Microsoft Updates Windows Live Services for Mobile

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://mobile.live.com/' target='_blank'>http://mobile.live.com/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Great news! We are now live with our new and updated Windows Live services for mobile. Go to http://mobile.live.com from your mobile phone's web browser and check it out. There are a lot of new features and services that weren't even available for our beta users. We're really excited about these new mobile experiences! The new and updated mobile web services include Windows Live Home, Photos, Profile, People, and Spaces. These complement our existing mobile services, like Hotmail and Messenger. (An update to Hotmail for mobile web is on its way in the coming months - check this blog for more mobile news as it becomes available). With this release, we are extending even more of Windows Live to mobile devices, but with a mobile twist. To get started, all you need is a phone with a browser and a data plan. Using these services doesn't require a download - all you do is go to the new Windows Live website at http://mobile.live.com."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/ppct/auto/1229008271.usr2.jpg" /></p><p>Microsoft's quest to roll out its new and improved Windows Live applications and services has extended to mobile devices.

These sites don't appear to render correctly in Opera Mobile 9.5 on the Sprint Touch Pro, but they do render correctly in Pocket IE.

Bummer.

2nd. At first I thought I was just 'zoomed in' in Opera, but yeah, it's a rendering problem.

I'm guessing it is a user agent string thing. The site doesn't understand what browser you are in, so gives you the full page, like your desktop would. Then Opera tries to compensate for that full page.
