The ABC has begun beta testing a mobile-specific version of its web site, offering access to some of its most popular content including news, sport, weather (with a handy search by postcode feature), ABC TV listings, information from numerous ABC radio stations and the presumably inevitable ABC Shop.

Despite that, it's a welcome addition to the still fairly-sparse ranks of major local sites that have sensible portable device rendering.
