Adapt any page for a cell phone

About: Enter a URL

Jeff at Palm addict writes "Somehow tonight I stumbled on something I've never heard of. It seems that Google has a page that will optimize any website for viewing on a mobile phone or PDA, similar to Skweezer and IYHY. All you see when you load the page is what shows in the included graphic. No Google logo, no explanation, nothing. But simply enter a URL and you recieve a quick-loading mobile optimized version of the page you requested."

One thing that is learned from this is that showing the long tags list first would make site access via cell phone impractical. We will almost certainly need different url's for cell phone access.

Finally i got this error:

Error: 502
The specified server is either incorrect, or currently unable to handle the request due to a temporary overloading or maintenance. Please contact the site administrator.
Apparently the rte box goofs up the interaction with cell phones.
