I'd like to see a phone-browsable Sun (and other Mfg.) part number, where you "browse" to the page, enter the part #, and up comes a 3 or 4 line message (tailored to phone displays) describing the part...

The problem with "googling" from a cell phone is the part numbers also look like phone numbers, and you can get a few odd ball hits the first few you look at (which are easy to overlook on a normal display, since you get the synopsis/quote for each link)...

Just a thought... Heck, there are several sites with the data already, all they need is a trivial front end that puts out either HTML or WML, depending on browser type...

I keep an old E.L.I. ad in my stash of SBUS/MBUS boards, since all the common Sun part # are listed with short descriptions...
