Newyorkislanders.com, the team's official website, has gone mobile. Fans can now easily and quickly access the Islanders website on their cell phone or smart phone devices such as BlackBerrys, Treos, SideKicks through a webpage specially designed for readability.
Fans logging on to http://www.newyorkislanders.com/mobile
will see a primarily text-based website with links to the latest news, transactions, score updates and standings. Through those links, fans can access the essentials of the main website.
"This is a seamless way for Islanders fans to access our website when they're not at home or in front of a computer," said Chris Dey, Islanders Senior Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Operations. "Anyone with a media or internet package on their cell phone or smart phone devices will be able to quickly access our website."
From a technical standpoint, regular websites do not translate well from the computer monitor onto the smaller screen of a cell phone or smart phone device. The new mobile website for the Islanders streamlines the basics of the team's website and delivers it to fans on-the-go.
