Description


Mobi is a chess client for mobile phones and handheld devices intended for use on the Free Internet Chess Server (FICS) and the Internet Chess Club (ICC).

It should run on any device that supports something called Java MIDP 2.0 and can run Java programs as large as 100KB.   A list of phones and their capabilities can, at the time of writing this, be found at http://developers.sun.com/techtopics/mobility/device/device.

Enjoy!

    If you are away from your PC you can also use Mobi to follow WCC 2008 games live as they are relayed by FICS:

    Connect to freechess.org (you can login as guest if you don't have an account),    go to Menu, Custom command... an type: obs /s

    (command to observe the highest rated standard game).
