This site is now available in a mobile-friendly, text-only format here.
With billions of WAP-enabled phones around the world it makes sense to be mobile-friendly.
I’ve always had a softspot for WAP. Of course, most modern phones have web-browsing capabilities but for when it’s just text updates you’re after, the WAP versions of RSS-enabled websites are quicker and slicker.
BikeBiz has a great new mobile site but the old one was very nearly a top award winner in 2000.
WAP was in its infancy and there were just a handful of news websites offering a WAP service. BikeBiz.com was among them. I got the coding done by a very clever school kid and we were chuffed when the site came runner-up in the business technology section of the European Online Journalism Awards in 2000.
BikeBiz.com was also second in the business news category, beaten only by Dowjones.com. Joint runner-up that day was BBC.co.uk.
