The en.Wikipedia main page:


has a mobile version:


which lacks several sections:

* Did you know...
* On this day...
* Today's featured picture
* Other areas of Wikipedia
* Wikipedia's sister projects

could these not be provide as collapsed sections, or links to sub-pages?

Hi again, Andy :)

This is something we'll probably need to play around with a bit to strike a good balance between not overloading readers with tiny links and boxes that render poorly on mobile devices, but still letting them explore the full range of Wikipedia content. I've seen some great ideas coming from engineers and designers specifically around this problem, so you'll probably see the mobile main page/navigation start to evolve to reflect some of that work. 

Generally, I think it's important to keep in mind that the mobile site is still very, very new and has lots of room to develop and grow. We're trying to move fast, but there's an entire encyclopedia reading and editing experience to rethink from scratch, because the workflows that are reasonable on desktop won't always carry over to a small touchscreen.
