Smartphone Thoughts has a brief post on AJAX apps in Internet Explorer Mobile. According to Kevin Grey of the IE Mobile Team, "Yes, PocketPC and Smartphone devices 2003 and later, support AJAX." Now, I’m not a coder by any means, so I won’t presume to question Kevin’s response but I’m wondering how many sites that use AJAX are actually supported by the Windows Mobile implementation of Internet Explorer. When I connect up to the web via EV-DO and browse to Google’s Calendar or Microsoft’s own Windows Live site, they don’t seem to work very well for me in IE Mobile on a Windows Mobile 5.0 device.
Do you know of any AJAX-y sites that have full functionality on a Windows Mobile device? I’m having a hard time finding even one that works well. Are handheld devices still stuck on Web 1.0?
