Never? Right now, the service provides select information proxied through a
customized service. SprintPCS hasn't yet enabled all that can be done with
these phones. This offering is brand new -- and is surely to expand as the
technology stabilizes. After all, at least in my Sprint market, the best we
had was text paging that could be generated "from" the Web, rather than
actual web browsing.
That said, the producers of the Sprint mini-browser, phone.com, are on the
W3C HTML WG, and are very interested in providing broad access to Web
content, including XHTML.
Spent two days in Boston this past week (W3C AC meeting), and sat with one
of phone.com senior engineers. His phone (connecting through phone.com's
own service), was significantly more "enabled" than mine was -- in fact, he
received and we read Tim's message wrt: the disposition of XHTML on his
phone, as well as looked around at other information I couldn't yet get on
"Never" isn't a word that's very applicable in this situation.
