Do you read Destructoid on the toilet?  Don't answer that!

If you have an internet-capable phone you'll be glad to know that we've upgraded the mobile version of our site quite a bit to make it faster and more useful on the go.  We've packed most of the features into a tiny interface that lets you login and do just about everything -- read and post comments, jump to friends updates, view all community blogs, and get all the news or just jump to your favorite consoles.

We didn't water down the experience either: Instead of loading the entire articles with large photos we now load a highly compressed thumbnail (or author photo if none is available) and a summary that jumps to the full text.  These improvements dramatically help load time even if you're not on a 3G phone. A few little things were scrapped (as loading 500 avatars on a cell phone was melting some people's batteries) but overall I think you'll be pleased. 

If you are not getting the mobile version of the site from your device please visit this page and let us know exactly what it says in the comments below and we'll hard-code support for it on the next patch.

Otherwise, any suggestions on how we can make it better? Let us know know! Please mention the type of phone you are using.
