Mobile Islanders

While this is a bit of old news, on July 14th the New York Islanders website went mobile. The mobile site is a stripped down version of the main site where mobile phone users can visit via their cellular devices, such as Pocket PC’s, Blackberry’s and other Smartphone’s.

As a Windows Mobile user myself (Cingular 8525), I constantly check the Isles site and many other hockey sites for updates throughout the day. I also rely on my device for email, as well as updating Islesblogger on the go.

I wanted to make this post for the other mobile users out there. If there was ever a time when you couldn’t get to a radio or a computer to listen to a radio station – you can now listen to almost any feed in the US and Canada through Tuned.mobi. I am talking any of the sports channels – from The FAN (WFAN) to FAN590 in Toronto. I suggest checking it out when you have the chance.

One other area where a mobile device comes in handy is if you also happen to be a Slingbox owner. Last December I purchased a Slingbox because work sent me to the Caribbean for 10 days (to work on some A/C equipment on a resort island). Being my first year with season tickets – I did not want to miss any games (even though I set the DVR). With my Slingbox, I got to watch all the games right on my laptop. Once I purchased my phone, I also purchased the Mobile Sling player. Since then, if I wasn’t near a TV – I was able to watch right on my phone. Slingbox is the perfect investment for any sport fan in my opinion.

If by chance you have a different tip to follow on your mobile device – email me the tip, and I will make an update. You can simply click on the Mobile Updates category to the right to see all the posts related to mobile.
