IRC on your mobile

17th June 2003

Russell Beattie has posted an enthusiastic description of a new IRC application for his mobile phone. It looks really neat, but what got me really interested was his post today about his new laptop:

I got a new machine today... It was pretty fun how I did it. I stayed on the #mobitopia IRC channel via my telephone while I was wandering around the stores—I would type in the make/model/specs and the price and ask the guys online to see what they could find in terms of comparitive prices and to get their opinions.

Russell has been documenting the new mobile phone revolution on his blog for several months now, and it’s well worth reading regularly if you are at all interested in mobile technology.
