Only webkit and wp7 will view story images inline. Other mobile browsers will display a link.

I wish! Neowin Mobile has never displayed pictures inline on Windows Phone 7. Even though it is fully capable of it, winrumors does it, but Neowin Mobile doesn't. As shown below.

PS: Love the new Neowin Mobile, looks really nicely done. (Y)

Odd, I see images fine inline on wp7. Can't compare to winrumors, one is running off of wordpress :p

Same thing happens to me. :/

Great update so far!

My only suggestion is a making a pin-able tile for WP7. (Like google did)

Not getting that when I pin to the start screen, also can't find any documentation on that.

I like the new theme but how about adding a shortcut to go to the main page when your inside the forum? At a glance there doesn't seem to be any way other than to change the URL.

Are you trying to pin google.com to the start screen or that special webpage? I believe they understand that wp7 takes a picture of the webpage to use as the tile so they take you to a webpage that was essentially designed to be an icon and when wp7 takes a picture of the webpage, it becomes that icon on the tile. When you open it from the start screen, that webpage knows to redirect to google.com. It seems to be a workaround really, not a dedicated way of setting an icon for the tile. They were simply crafty. :p But I'm not sure, I'm just assuming.

What?! Not fair! Take a screenshot of the same article that has all those iOS screenshots of that Path app from your Windows Phone. Maybe it's the user agent since you said it only works in webkit and wp7, maybe something is not detecting it is wp7 for that particular function. Mine is "Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows Phone OS 7.5; Trident/5.0; IEMobile/9.0; SAMSUNG; SGH-i937)".

Do you think it is possible to fix this? You were saying you can't compare to WinRumors because it is WordPress. Does this mean that you can't fix this because it is out of your control? Doesn't Dave Legg create Ignition? Couldn't you collaborate on a solution? It certainly does not bug me as much as the landscape-supportless Neowin Mobile a few months back, but it is rather irritating having to click the 'view image' link every time especially because IE9 Mobile has this weird 'by design' lag where when you tap on a link, the highlight flashes longer than it does on Safari, on Safari it is practically a blink.

Anyway, having to tap on those links all the time has that horrible lag even if it is 0.5 seconds and when you're looking through reviews and screenshot leaks, it is time consuming... Consider figuring that out...whenever you get the time...I don't really mind it, it's not as nerve-wrecking as it was 2-3 months ago when I'd be laying in bed and my phone would go into landscape and I couldn't view Neowin correctly...soooo glad you got landscape fixed on wp7 or I would've gone mad! :p (well...I did go mad :p )

Pushed another update, fixed webos bugs (news images will be better quality when on a tablet). REMOVED view image link, since we're only supporting modern phones now.

AWESOME! :D

Thank you so much!

Touchpad owners, add neowin to the launcher using this: (Link to image)

Why do I have to press the back button twice in order to go back out of the article into the frontpage? Also on every article on the bottom after the footer (looks like its in a frame) i get "We're having trouble finding that page." Error: HTTP 400 Bad request.". Same thing happened in the previous version. I'm on HD7 Mango...also when I press back once the "Error: HTTP 400" disappears.

As stated in the other thread, its IE issue.

That isn't the right Touchpad launcher dimension. It's 90x120.

I know it's weird, look:

Normally when adding something to the launcher it just takes a crappy corner shot of the page.

Square images are all screwed up, they have to be re-sized to 90x120.

Also, here is the Touchpad friendly version of the icon you just posted. (Link to image)

Are you pinning google.com or the link that pops up on screen?

I don't think there is documentation for it. All WP7 does is take a picture of the page.

I don't like the mobile first page. It would be MUCH better if the topic titles wrapped instead that you only see the first words followed by ...

As it is now you kind of have to put the phone in landscape mode to see the titles, which sucks.

Has always been this, and won't change. I'll just say its metro so I can get away with having text cut off :p

It doesn't look good in my (bada) device, both in landscape/portrait mode.
Picture bump.

Technically, the Metro text cut off has no ellipsis ;)

Looks good on my HD7. Well done guys, keep up the good work. Nice to see the pictures in the news story now as well instead of in a row at the bottom. Only minor issue I've seen is that ads just say we're having trouble finding this page, not that I'm worried about them though, I assume this can be attributed to a lack of Flash support?

It would be interesting if you could allow for swiping through the news stories at the top of the main page and maybe make it static in portrait view.

somehow the #branding div has weird unnessary box-shadow around it on my mozilla nightly 11.0 and the header div height is nto working correctly on desktop browsers too...

just make the titles rotate with js which works fine on any mobile browser and is a 10sec job :/
