WeGoPlaces Tourism, a leading U.S. and Canada travel planning website, releases a new version of their website specifically for iPhone visitors. The website auto-detects the use of the iPhone and presents information in an iPhone friendly format. In addition, since the iPhone 3.0's Safari browser now supports Geolocation services, the new release can automatically detect the visitor's location and display nearby attractions and hotels.

"Most websites are hard to view on an iPhone," said Jeff Smith, president of WeGoPlaces. "With the new release, iPhone users no longer need to zoom in to view content. It's all easily viewable. Travelers can easily find "things to do" that are nearby. WeGoPlaces.com is constantly adding more attractions, events and things to do every day. By providing free listings for tourism businesses and event organizers, we continue to improve our travel planning services."

In a recent interview with Business week (http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/content/09_33/b4143011785548.htm), Google CEO Eric Schmidt mentioned that "…the rough number of PCs is around 800 million; the rough number of mobile phones is on the order of 3 billion. Even more important, the growth rate of mobile phones is quite a bit higher than that of personal computers. There's an estimate of about 600 million mobile phones that are data- and Internet-capable".
