    Feel the need to keep up with the latest on TechPowerUp on the go? Carry something a lot more compact than a netbook? We've got you covered. TechPowerUp Mobile is now live and stable for mobile users. The new mobile site is specifically designed with small screens and low bandwidth in mind, and features a minimalist, yet functional interface to grab the latest news, reviews, forums, and browse through the "Today's Reviews" section. To access the mobile page, simply point your mobile's web-browser to www.techpowerup.com, and it will redirect you to the mobile site. You can disable the auto redirect, customize how the site displays to you a little. The mobile site is designed to scale its elements to fit smartphone screens of most sizes.

    Just tried it out on my mobile - it's nice and snappy and the size of the links makes it nice and easy to click - great job :)

    **edit**
    I tried it on a Nexus one running gingerbread 2.3.4 with the stock browser.

    LOL the only dude that has major issues has an iPhone4...

    That tickles me :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

    But I agree, with modern smart phones that browse the web like a tiny PC, I dont go in for mobile sites.

    Last time I checked on my Droid X, it was up and running in mobile, I swear that was 2 weeks ago. Looks good, but I typically jump to the full site ...for sites that allow it.

    Kudos for doing this and also the redirect option!

    I was actually using this yesterday and the day before. The forums were last and the final piece that made the mobile version of the site complete.
