I love my K-JAM. I use it obsessively.
I use it to check my email, to read my feeds and to get the information that's important to me.
There are some sites I go to all the time, sites which have been optimised for browsing by Pocket IE

Frank, What sort of costing does this add your bill per month, as the whole reason I gave up using my O2 XDA for web access was the exorbitant GPRS charges that Australian providers charge.
Justin - i am on a fixed plan.
its like $49.99 for 100mb (or something like that)
When I use my XDAIIs, I tell IE to not show images. Helps a lot. :)
But also, I use the WiFi connection whenever possible, rather than GPRS.
And I use the Guardian's Football LiveScores page, despite it not being optimised for mobile use... the BBC's page has a .wml page for it, but that doesn't suit Pocket IE.
Thanks for listing the sites. I recently bought the HP iPAQ rw6828 and was searching for sites that are designed for the mobile version of IE.
This is interesting viewing. I have no idea how many sites offer their information at PDA view ... but I bet there needs to be more. I wonder how many blogs could be better 'viewing' if designed to fit a smaller screen not a bigger one? Certainly gives me food for thought as I redevelop my own website.
PS. Long time lurker and reader, though a lot of it goes right over my head!
On a tangent, you have a lot of adverts etc down the left of screen and very little on the right. The name-links might appreciate the linkage if put right and up the page.
Good list Frank, a few more for you:

And running some websites through Skweezer (http://www.skweezer.net/) really helps.
I use BlogLines too, and I think their mobile edition works really well (they display any linked pages using Skweezer).
