Vector loads up just file on a SamSung Omnia II. Tested with Main page, Random Article, and Current Events on EN Wikipedia.

Comment from K. Peachey via email:
I think you guys are experiencing the java-script load issues, Due to our amount of javascript that is loaded some browsers (eg: IE6 on desktop) can't handle it and refuses to load and errors out, This <s>should</s> will be fixed when the work on the resource loader branch is finished and merged.

I'm k. Peachey, the bug numbers for what I mentioned are 24356 and 23612

23554 is also somewhat related

Changed Bug 24415 from a "Blocks" to a "Depends on" as I don't see how this bug could block the Resource Loader from being implemented.

nevermind, that tracking bug is set-up backwards

This may be fixed now. Assigning to Tomasz for verification.

Resolving per my earlier comments.
