Mobile portals: More options needed

(Via Webware) Staff writer, Rafe Needleman, looks at the state of mobile portals, including Google, Yahoo, Netvibes and Tappity.

I’m surprised that more Web sites aren’t mobile friendly. By now, all content management systems and blogging platforms should be creating lightweight versions of their hosted sites automatically for users that come in via a mobile phones or WAP browsers. And even major sites that do have mobile versions (like most of the travel sites out there, bless them) don’t automatically redirect users there when they should.
