The official FIFA World Cup mobile site is now live.
Lots of people have been sceptical to the utility of mobile browsing. The Yahoo mobile team has stepped up and made this gift to the football fans on the move. Access it on your 3G phone and get a sense where the mobile world is heading. What I like is the ability you have to customize. You can select favourite teams, pick a couple players to follow more closely. You can bookmark interesting news. To me this is a small prelude after years of hype of mobile internet, experienced through the mobile browser, this is very useful. Never before have the fans had this much information while mobile. Well presented and optimised for one hand operated devises. I guess the other hand could hold a beer? You find it by entering www.fifa.com on your mobile browser. Just make sure you have internet enabled as it is on the open internet.
