Today the fastest growing communities of web users are mobile visitors who browse web pages using wireless PDAs and cellular phones. However, most web pages are optimized exclusively for desktop clients on the broadband network and are inconvenient to users with small screen mobile devices. They display only a few lines of text and cannot run client-side programs or scripts due to lack of system resources. Even worse, their connections are usually too slow to support most of the data-intensive applications. To address this problem, in this paper, we propose a newslet scheme that makes it feasible to browse ordinary news web pages on small screen mobile devices. It first extracts news sections of user preference from news web pages and then automatically reorganizes them for convenient browsing on the mobile devices.
