Orkut on mobile

Updated 03/26/2008: Here Orkut has released the mobile version of orkut.. http://m.orkut.com.

You can check,

1) New friend requests
2) Scraps
3) Updates from friends
4) My updates
5) My Profile
6) Friends
7) Search Friends

Pretty decent and serves the purpose.

You cannot yet access your communities or do anything related to communities. If you are using really browser like opera mini, safari on iphone you can use the below given way to access your orkut account and you will get access to everything..

--------------------------------------


The integration of orkut with gtalk does not seem to be so great (at least this isn't the full version).. anyways it just works..

Was wondering if orkut would release a version for mobile... sending/receiving scraps on your mobile.. I searched around and found that they might in fact release something on those lines..

Anyways, before they release you can still access orkut on your mobile.. just point your mobile browser to

https://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLoginBox?service=orkut&nui=2&uilel=1&skipvpage
=true&continue=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.orkut.com%2FRedirLogin.aspx%3Fmsg%3D0%26

kut.com%2FGLogin.aspx&hl=pt-US

yo... freaked out.. here someone created a tinyurl... point your browser to... http://tinyurl.com/ykko69 ... have fun :)

Cool opera mini 4. best of the best of the best & reallllly great I am using it form past 3 month it works great & so fast & exactly same as that of your computer with 1024x768 resolution. you can install it very easily. just got to your mobile browser & search on google or use mobango.com website. After getting this browser I am sure you will simply forget your mobile browser.

I am talking about opera mini 4 java. I dont know wheather it works on symbian also or not. I am having MOTOROLA ROKR E6 from when i can open html sites also . But it requires internet connection. It works great with internet connection & motorokr e6 in built browser. But if you want to open orkut with wap connection. Usually your service orovider blocks secure sites. or somtimes problem occurs while loadin secure site. So use opera mini 4 java basis. & enjoyyyy.

I am using opera mini 4 & 3.1 also. Because for some sites login dosent accepts on opera mini 4 so you can open it from opera mini 3.1. opera mini 3.1 is the best for functioning. & opera mini 4 is best for its display. ICICI banks login, rediffbol login & mobango login dosent accepts even you enter correct password. So for this use opera mini 3.1. if you want to contact me you can ask question personally also "skondgekar@yahoo.co.in".
You wont believe I am posting this comment through opera mini 4 only. at a time 1024 bytes you can writte. Because of touch screen my mobile is now converted into PC. & now i think i dont need PC. Atleast for browsing.

gosh i have same prob as few above . please find some way out guys.

@Sudarshan, @Ajay

Please use http://m.orkut.com. There seems to be a problem when you access the full site instead of the wap... I have tried this numerous times and orkut seems to be having a problem here... This might be because of the incapability of mobile phones to handle complex ajax scripts, as orkut had rolled out a new version with lots of web2.0 features.

Nevertheless, the wap version m.orkut.com works like charm. Do, let me know if you guys are haing the problem accessing the wap version too.

Btw, I tested the above on P1i.. with the default browser and Opera Mini 4.1.1
