Default Best BlackBerry Sized Web Sites?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone,

When I hit my bookmarks on my 7100t, I noticed some of the websites are full size and annoying to navigate (e.g. CNN). I know there are mobile sites in WML but generally there are no images and you have to hit Next Page a lot.

ESPN, has a "pocketpc" version which is great. One image, no excessive page next's. It is basically somewhere in the middle of a full web site and a mobile phone web site. Does anyone have a list of the best ones out there? Like weather, news, and so on?

thanks.

I know my home page is set to Google, and for news I just use Google news.

Here is a list someone else made of PDA friendly sites:

These are geared for Pocket PC's but may be of interest and work on your blackberry - check out the sites under General Directories

Here is my favorite. http://www.pdaportal.com. It has over 600 sites you can search for a particular site and go to it and if you like it book mark it.
