Yes the iPhone and Nokia phones that run browsers based on the latest version of Webkit will run Ajax. It was actually Nokia that did most of the work to make Webkit work on mobile devices. I'm not aware of any other phones/browser combos that you can do true Ajax development on.

Thanks Andre and Bear.
I dont know if iPhone's Map feature is enabled with AJAX, but it is too slow and not comparable with Google maps (Successful AJAX implementer). Ofcourse, network speed also makes a huge impact.
I've tested a number of browsers for Ajax, including some mobile browsers. I have the test with my test results online. My server is not always up, but I'll try to leave it on for at least the next 10 hours or so.
To run the test, simply click on the button. If you get the response "Valid User Id: valid" (just below the button) then the test was successful. If nothing happens, the test was unsuccessful.
Successful tests on:
MSIE 7 - PC Firefox 2 - PC Opera 9.1 - PC Netscape 7 (or is it Opera 8) on Symbian S60 - Nokia E62 Netscape 7 (or is it Opera 8) on Symbian S60 - Nokia E70 Opera 8.60 for Windows Mobile, Pocket PC (claiming to be Microsoft Internet Explorer 4) - Dell Axim X30 with Windows Mobil 2003 Mozilla Minimo 0.009 for Windows Mobile Pocket PC - Dell Axim X30 with Windows Mobil 2003
Failed test on:
Microsoft Pocket Internet Explorer - Dell Axim X30 with Windows Mobil 2003

Server will be up for the rest of the day (Swedish time). If you're interested, would be nice if you'd try The Ajax Test first and let me know if you reach it. (There might be a problem.) If that doesn't work, click on the link above that uses the IP address.
