Google bot is Nokia 6820

Just recently, one of our mobile sites was scanned by Google bot. Everything is fine, but why Google bot is Nokia 6820?

User-agent: Nokia6820/2.0 (4.83) Profile/MIDP-1.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.0 (compatible; Googlebot-Mobile/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)

I think that Google just use it because its quite popular phone. Good is, that we will serve it rich xhtml mobile version of pages. Google will not see our WAP version.

Perhaps some mobile sites are picking up the old habit of “Your browser is not supported! Please go and download Internet Explorer 3!”.

Do you have a WAP version of this blog then?
