In pictures: Top 20 mobile websites and services

Apps, schmaps. Who needs to download anything when these mobile sites and services offer fast information and entertainment right in your mobile browser?

The Best Mobile Web Sites and Services

When it comes to smartphones and tablets, mobile apps get all the glory. But they also eat up storage space, and often cost money. And if you decide you need an app while you're away from the cozy confines of a Wi-Fi hotspot, they can be difficult, or impossible, to download.

Luckily, though, apps aren't your only option: there are plenty of mobile sites, services, and Web apps you can use. Thanks to the rise of HTML 5--the Web standard that brings enhanced usability and rich media to handheld devices--mobile sites are better than ever. Here are 20 that you should check out now. (Most will work with an Android or iOS device, but a few are platform-specific.)

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
