Mippin uses RSS, brings web to your mobile

MippinAnother day, another way to get web content on your mobile phone. Today’s entry is Mippin, a service now in public beta that’s usable on practically any mobile phone with a WAP 2.0 browser and 176 or more pixels of screen width. Mippin’s database stores feeds that are requested and then makes them available to other users, so theoretically, once you add a feed, it’s there for everyone. Using the RSS feeds from content providers, Mippin creates an optimalweb page for viewing that content on your device based on theuser-agent string it receives. Could be the beta status, but I was unable to view jkOnTheRun for some reason; still, there’s plenty of great content already available. Looks great on an iPhone, but the real test is when I hit it later on the Samsung SYNC we have lying around.
