[maemo-users] iphone "apps" on the N800

Actually, I've tried a few more sites, and yeah, you're right, some of the
more heavily AJAX'd sites don't work. I checked out some of the "iphone
specific" iphone-ized sites/webapps on iphoneapps.cnet.com and these seem
to work fine:

facebook, brickshooter, sudoku, digg, countdown timer, tip
 calculator, iphlickr, appmarks, mojits

I especially like how iphlickr's interface gives you the iphone "feel".
Appmarks is pretty neat, and it makes my Nokia look a bit like an iphone,
but it's super slow. Mojits works better as an iphone apps launcher.

I should also mention that I'm running the Mozilla browser.

So I was really off about the compatibility, but I still think it's an
interesting idea. The nice thing about the N800 is you'd have the best of
both worlds: "real" apps *and* web/iphone apps. Of course the down side is
you gotta have wi-fi access. Still, it might be an interesting direction
for some developers to try out. At the very least, I'm digging the
iphone-ized web sites 'cause they fit my browser window so well!
