Get LinkedIn on your mobile thanks to a new mobile LinkedIn client

Cool news for those of you that are LinkedIn... now the popular networking resource for professionals has a mobile client... nice! All you need to do to access the service from your device is to jump to (kudos for using the "m." naming convention... I'm a big fan of this rather than .mobi etc...) Simply hit the mobile site, login, then access your profile, search for others by keyword or name, even update your settings. The service looks great on my N95 (see below) and you can even pull up the bio of a contact if needed. As a test I searched for the name "Fee" (James is one of my contacts). Sure enough James comes up as the top hit! Imagine being on the road and you meet someone at an event. You can immediately get connected right on the spot! FYI, if your LinkedIn and want to get connected with yours truly you can see my profile here.
