But, like many sites, it is particularly friendly to the iPhone and cordially polite to other platforms like Windows Mobile. You can see what it looks like on my Windows Mobile touch-screen HTC TyTn on the left in the screenshot above and on an iPod touch on the right.

That said, Wikipedia item pages are readable on the Windows Mobile smartphone once you get past the jumbled banner area at the top.

Thanks to Slashdot for this news…
