As for accessing me.com through mobile safari- you cant access me.com directly, but you can access the different MobileMe web apps by going to the links that it gives you for sharing. For instance, to get to your iDisk type http://public.me.com/username
. For your photo galleries you would type http://gallery.me.com/username
I totally disagree.
iDisk is core feature of the service and should be accessible VIA the iPhone.
As a software developer myself, i see this as a MAJOR blunder, and I can understand if they fire the initial mobileMe dev team.
I beleive this is due to the lack of another core feature in the iPhone 3G "Finder"
There is not a native ( or accessible gui ) file management program for the iPhone.
This is just a clear indicator that the application was released incomplete.
It's just logical that your iDisk is accessible via the iphone, I could see myself using this feature daily.
