    I would like to use the birdseye view on Bing Maps - driving directions, routes, and traffic (evil, I know:) I tried the about:debug way and set my UIstring to "Desktop", yet I can only see the mobile version of that site. Wikipedia and many other sites also serve their cripled mobile version.
    I use a nexus one, it is more than capable of rendering a full version wikipedia page, do I really need to hack/crack/r00t/pwn my phone to read original content or is there something I can do? Please help.

    Try another browser and set the user agent in that browser.
