Any cool WAP sites out there?

Can somebody suggest any cool WAP sites (I know, that's a bit of an oxymoron). All there seems to be are news, traffic and games and ringtone download sites. Also, does anybody know of a good WAP directory? One that doesn't list sites that have been dead since 2001...

No, but I have been playing a bit with mini opera which you can install on most modern web enabled browsers. Makes standard web pages a bit more usable.

I really like my local transportation service's WAP site (wap.trimet.org). I don't ride the Bus/Max frequently enough to have the schedule memorized, so it comes in handy when I need to figure out how to get somewhere and when/where I need to be to make that happen. Look for something similar in your town.

I think some of the online RSS aggregators work with most phones. If you have a bloglines account, check it out.

I have a fractal website and I have set up a mobile version of it. Pretty pictures on your mobile device:

Unfortunately I haven't had much luck finding directories for nifty/fun mobile-accessible content.

I found most of my favorites from reading this thread over at Howard Forums.

Google Maps via WAP. Mobile GMaps.

I'm not sure how up to date mobile.google.com listings are (or google.com/pda for PDA users), but I do know that the "big wave of the future" is porn and phone sex sites using WAP technology.

I know for a fact that Danni Ashe has launched a mobile version of her members site, and several of the Phone Dommes that I know are working on WAPsites.
