Unless I missed something I do not believe this is automatic. These sites have made a special mobile versions of their site and are redirecting them there automatically through code on their servers.

You will definitely have to build your own redirect. It really depends on you language as to how to do it. Also, this was asked on SO a while back, here. Check out WURLF as the SO answer suggests. When you make the redirect you will want to make sure to use a 302 Redirect.

For the iPhone in particular you should consider configuring the viewport, which controls the scale at which your page will get rendered. This is especially useful if your site is significantly narrower than the default viewport width of 980px. You can do this with a meta tag: <meta name = "viewport" content = "width = 590"> You can also set the ...

It appears based on this and this that Android will use the rel type of apple-touch-icon-precomposed or apple-touch-icon, BUT that for it to work you need to use a fully qualified url, e.g.: <link rel="apple-touch-icon-precomposed" href="http://www.example.com/custom_icon.png" /> or: <link rel="apple-touch-icon" ...

With more and more phones with higher resolution, good browser scaling and normal javascript/css support it's much less needed to make a special version of your site for mobile.

How are you planning on detecting whether a user is surfing on a mobile device or not? Keep in mind that not all mobile browsers behave like mobile browsers. In fact, the browser on many newer smart phones seem to try to pass themselves off as regular desktop browsers since they already match most features of a full-fledged desktop browser and don't want to ...

Those are from the Google+ app running on the iPad and iPhone. It's running a modified Chrome browser. The mention of Mozilla/5.0 has to do with the history of User Agent Strings, and nothing to do with who built the software. See more here: http://webaim.org/blog/user-agent-string-history/

I personally access the web from my phone about 90% of the time when I'm not at work so if it doesn't work on the phone it is not a viable option for me, but currently the overwhelming population still uses desktops or laptops, so you should still have a sizable potential user base by ignoring mobile. I ascribe to the theory of "if you're trying to please ...

Here is an article on making an iWeb site iPhone ready which states some of the things you can do, it seems like bad advise though. Is there any reason why you are using iWeb for web development?

Honestly, I would avoid using them new HTML5 tags like head, section, and article. Their definitions are vague and unclear. Nobody (including the guy that thought of them) really knows how to use them. Here is a link to an interesting article on that topic: .NET article And if you don't want to read it, here is one sentence summary: Stick with your ...

I can't seem to find anything either about this, but the one thing I can assume is that because the mobile screen is much smaller that the scroll speed is probably faster, e.g. if you do a big long swipe on the mobile vs a swipe on the desktop it wouldn't scroll as fast because there is less data to scroll.

Well, it should not be too hard depending on your level of knowledge of Objective C and Java. If I were you, check out a book called iPhone Programming The big nerd ranch guide by Joe Conway and Aaron Hillegass. That should get you going in the right direction for iPhone programming. Android I can not really say as I do not know much about it nor have read ...

iPhone and iPads don't support flash and the only SSH you get is on either jailbroken (and that isn't very good, or so I have heard) or on a server. There is support for ftp and svn as long as you don't want to actually run the files locally. I use my ipad for edits on the go that I can then upload and view on my server. One option is the Nokia Internet ...

This may involve multiple efforts to ...

This depends on which platform you target. But i think most - standard compatible - mobile browsers understands the default favicon tags. Maybe you can search for special use cases (e.g. create desktop shortcut with a special icon) on platforms like Android, iOS, WebOS, ...
