NNTP Bridge for Droid Incredible HTC RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey, I am using a Droid for most of the things I was using my laptop for with Windows Vista using Windows Mail and Thunderbird to access the MS forums using the NNTP Bridge. There is a Usenet reader for the Drioid called Groundhog that I can use to access newsgroups. I have to say that the Droid is fabulous. Since I was able to install Bing for the Androids on the phone and use Bing, I am thinking why can't I do the same thing with some type of NNTP Bridge application for the Android? I used the browser on the Droid to get to the MS fourms only to find out that I cannot make a post or reply to a post due to the forum website not being Android friendly.  

    Look, more and more professionals, I am a .Net programmer contractor, are starting to use the smartphones instead of dragging a laptop around while on the road for day-2-day business with an office and other services that a smartphone provides. I think a NNTP bridge for smartphones should be developed by MS. I am also going to suggest that MS also make its Web sites smartphone friendly.

  • I guess that depends on the browser you are using. My forum experience in the stock browser of tmobile g2 is comparable to desktop browsers. -
