Excessive loading times
Although UMTS and HSDPA theoretically deliver speeds comparable to those of a Home PC, the average time for retrieving a website in reality is much longer. In addition, many rate plans are based upon volume, resulting in considerable costs for users browsing too large websites. It is therefore important to keep the overall size of a page as small as possible.

Exceeding resolutions
A lot of cell phone screens have a maximum resolution of 240x320. Since most websites are far wider it is extremely troublesome to watch them on a mobile phone.
If you are running a Wordpress-Blog, you can use our plug-in WP viewMobile to make it ready for mobile internet - with just a few clicks.
