We talked about the progress for mobile phone support and, it was said that Commons would be the obvious next candidate for mobile phone support. There are several issues that need to be addressed.
- traffic to and from mobiles is expensive
- there is no standardisation in screen size for mobile phones
- our current strategy of downloading the WHOLE picture to a mobile does not work
The Djatoka software provides such functionality. It is open source software and, as such it allows for great support for mobile phones. It would not only enable the use of Commons for the mobile phone, it would also improve the support of pictures for mobile Wikipedia.
