Well, I Guess It’s Better Than Saying ‘Novarra Breaks The Mobile Internet For Vodafone UK Subscribers’

It would appear that Novarra’s the vendor responsible for the cock-up that rendered many mobile web sites useless for Vodafone UK subscribers. The company’s put out a press release touting the wonders of its “Vision(TM) server version 6.5”, highlighting the “rich user experience” it offers, and how it “automatically transforms the web to fit handset specific capabilities”.

Of course, apparently by “automatically transforms the web to fit handset specific capabilities”, they mean they do a better job of it than individual developers and content providers ever could, so don’t bother. However, it “equally supports mass-market and high tier handsets”, which I guess means it makes sites that do their own content adaptation work equally poorly on all devices.
