Google Has Killed The Mobile Web

It's just that I've never been satisfied with any device with "the mobile web" - it was never anywhere near usable enough for me to use it on a daily basis. I assumed that since you noticed something like that, you most likely use such a device (perhaps even often). I know I'm like lightyears behind when it comes to using gadgets, so I know I'm probably missing something .
(afterthought: here I am outing myself as a mobile-newbie )

But I can tell you that a lot of people are having a good experience with mobile sites. Sometimes because the sites are properly designed, or just because they have a decent browser and/or phone.
May I ask what kind of handset you used and what websites you visited?

So is it an enjoyable process? Definitely not, but it sure beats being bored.
Yahoo Go is good. Live Search, with the mapping software, is amazing - I love it! I don't have GPS but I might splurge for the hardware just to make it completely functional.
My device is an Orange SPV M600, which is a bog-standard Orange-branded SIM-locked piece of kit.

If there's an issue about the web not working on phones, I feel that's an issue for browsers to work out, not for Google to work out.

I believe human behaviour will determine whether there is only one web or whether a Mobile Web develops that is to some degree independent of the regular web. Some of the dot Mobi initiatives seem to allow that to happen. If so, then Google will have to bow to reality and have a true Mobile search that works for all Mobile websites.
