WAP on the iPhone

I have just discovered that the iPhone doesn’t support WAP sites (I discovered this by trying to use National Rail‘s WAP site).

Now, I’m aware that this might sound a little redundant, but I really think the iPhone should work with WAP pages. Sure, you have a perfectly good web browser on the iPhone that renders ordinary web pages perfectly well. But….

You simply cannot escape from the fact that the screen is small, and it can be a real pain in the arse scrolling around the screen, zooming in and out, etc.

Which are similar problems that WAP pages were designed to solve!

And seeing as there are some sites out there that are much, much, quicker to use through a WAP site rather than their HTML-based equivalents, it kind of makes sense some times….

No? Just me then….
