Anybody use any kind of mobile device to view retrobike? Be interested to hear what you use and how well/badly the site runs?

I've tried the stock browser on my (now slightly retro) motorola slvr. Which is hopeless.
Also tried 'Opera Mini' which actually runs retrobike quite well...

tried it on my blackberry browser - it's OK-ish - but then no websites are great with the exception of BBC News (WAP version). Problem mainly is images - too many of them! It's not a 3G connection, just GPRS.

Nokia N95 and T Mobile MDA work great with Retrobike.
