Pawned by the Opera Mini browser

Original Post
Can’t view Wowhead or the World of Warcraft Armory on your mobile phone? Now you can with Opera Mini. I’m testing it out and blogging with it right now. More details later. I might miss my stop.

UPDATE: 4/20/09 5:33 PM
I added in the links for Wowhead  and the armory above from my laptop.  Everything else below too.

A few months ago I went over $20 on my bill because of internet usage.  I didn’t want to pay that much again so I got unlimited internet on my phone for $15 more a month.

Since then I read most of the blogs and WoW news on my phone.  I got sick and tired of not being able to view the Armory or Wowhead on my phone.  So I went on a quest.  Google did not give me any answers.  I ended browsing the Sony Ericsson website on my phone and decided to download another browser.  Thankfully I did.

Opera Mini – Official Link

My phone is a Sony Ericsson W580i.  The default browser can’t view Wowhead or the armory.  It says the page is too large to load.  With the Opera Mini browser you can view both pages and more.

Wowhead
The Wowhead database, blog, and forum are
accessible.

Armory
Your character sheet on the armory is available but the Upgrade option is not.  The pictures for each piece of gear isn’t available on the armory, either.  It is nice that you can view your Statistics and Achievements.

WordPress
It’s a phone, not a laptop.  No cut and paste.  No multiple tabs.  You can start a post, gather ideas, and save it as a draft.  You can even edit html. It would be easier at home to add in links and images.

Visual Evidence
Screenshots and maybe a video later.

‘Til next time…
