[Phpwm] mobile redirect

For the record, on mine, I just want to detect mobiles in case I ever have to do support.  It works on my iTelephone and that’s good enough for my needs at the moment.


The Browscap object I sent earlier does detect the phone you’re using (it’s the $objBrowscap->Browser element) so you *CAN* do things with it.

if you think cross browser issues on a pc are bad, wait till you start developing for mobile. Its not a case of firefox, chrome or ie. http://wurfl.sourceforge.net/ has a 16mb xml file noting all the features available to each device (html, css, js etc support)... 

something like http://www.webdevout.net/browser-support-css for mobiles

Q. Should all mobile device browsers then be treated equally - i.e. test on one works on all? Or are there cross browser issues / difficulties that appear later?

If so, without buying a heap of different phones, how on earth do you test a site for compatibility?




p.s. anyone else doing any BADA development / playing with the SDK?
