Anyway the card idea is not that bad. I think the idea behind
the cards was that you allready have the next few pages (or
cards) when you enter a page so you dont have to wait for
phone to download them when you click a link.
This should work in the way that when the first page
loads the phone allready renders it to your handsets
display and the continues to download rest of the deck
in the background.
I say "should" because I think most of the phones don't
work this way, but they wait for the whole deck to download
before they display even the first page. Thus forcing you
to wait for the whole deck to download before even showing
you the first page.
