I tend to be with Harry on this one.
I've watched a number of people try to access websites on their mobile phones by entering the URL and it's not a fast process.
Combine that with the fact that a lot of our clients in the tourism industry have online booking forms provided by third parties and it begins to seem to me that if we were going to turn out full mobile versions of those sites all we would be doing is driving people away.
Maybe it's still better to provide cut-down versions for mobile use ... and it may always be that way because I can't see that screen sizes on mobile phones are going to increase all that much.
It's not the technology that's going to be the limiting factor ... it's the fact that people want a phone they can slip into their pocket or purse and not everyone wants to lug around an iPad.
