Most of the android and ios tablets can handle tomshardware's desktop version. I hate seeing the site's stripped-down, bare-bones mobile version, which befits a 3.5'', on a full-fledged 10'' tablet. Sites which have a mobile version ought to proffer a desktop version alternative in order to obviate tedious user-agent switching.
FYI, I have a BB Curve. To have any shot of realistically rendering Toms Hardware when I am on the go, I use m.tomshardware.com.
However, I don't use it very often, because I can't read the comments (the most useful part of TH IMHO).
Can you guys fix this? I don't need to be able to rate comments or even make new comments, but I think the feedback often has extremely insightful and useful information that I can't otherwise realistically access via my BB.
And, since these comments are becoming something of a wish list, could I add: The ability to zoom in and zoom out on both the iOS app and m.tomshardware.com website. Images are always really small and any text appearing on them is unreadable.

What a coincidence! We couldn't care less about you.. ;P
But seriously, that's awesome.. I'm gonna have to get this on my iPad now. Although there are still some updates that definitely are greatly desired, such as updates for logging in, commenting, and seeing more than just the news stream. True, I read the news articles first, but everything else I have to struggle to access(via a mobile browser please-for-the-love-of-god-stop-loading-the-mobile-site battle.)
Tom's Hardware is lazy. There's a 100% stable version of Android for tablets called Honeycomb. There's an equally stable Android version for phones called Gingerbread. Developing an app that runs on both platforms is easier than making a universal iOS app. Seriously? Tom's Hardware needs to get with the program.
I prefer mobile websites instead of downloading an 'app' for every website I visit frequently. I don't like Tom's mobile website because it doesn't have comments but still, making a proper mobile website seems like a much better way to support mobile devices than writing 'apps', especially if you couldn't even do one for Android.
