iPhone Surfing with Fast Pages

Targets users of Blackberry, Blackjack, Pearl, Nokia, Treo, LG, Motorola Q, iPhone and all smartphones

A vast majority of users of Blackberry, Blackjack, Pearl, Nokia, Treo, LG, Motorola Q, iPhone and all smartphones say they now use them solely for e-mail and text messaging with an occasional disappointing peak at the web. This failure is largely due to the hassle of typing lengthy web addresses on tiny keyboards, difficult downloads that often don't work and websites that are not user-friendly on mobile.

To combat precisely this problem, says Chris Chilvers, CEO of The Fast Pages, a completely free and unique mobile web directory has been released "with lightning-fast access to thousands of the best most mobile friendly websites and even more touch-to-dial phone numbers."

Called The Fast Pages or TFP, the directory will be particularly helpful for new iPhone users who may find their keyboard challenging at first.

"iPhone users can now surf the web immediately without typing and get real results, valuable information and instant dialing," says Chilvers. "With no downloading necessary, just enter http://www.thefastpages.com/ onto your mobile phone," he explains.

Now, with just a flick of one's finger, Chilvers contends, iPhone and even iPod Touch owners can access thousands of newspapers and magazines, animated weather, flight delays, traffic reports, emergencies, WiFi locations, all airlines, restaurants, local movies, embassies, maps, directions, travel, ATM locations, health, stock market, weather alert, Netflix, sports, best gas prices, package tracking, tickets to everything, best search engines, local search, translations, flight tracking and more.

"TheFastPages.com has found an innovative solution to the hassle of typing lengthy web addresses on tiny keyboards, difficult downloads that often don't work and websites that are not user-friendly on mobile," Chilvers - who resides both at his home and on his yacht in Palm Beach Gardens, FL - says. "TFP makes accessing the web a breeze. What's more, it is fast, completely free and very easy. And there is no downloading required. TheFastPages mobile website is bold, bright, with easy-to-read lettering and it works on all mobile web phones," he adds.

There is a demo,  an approximate simulation of TFPmobile's site, here.
