Redirect to a mobile site

It's quite useful piece of code-behind, which redirects to a mobile version of the site.

Please use and modify for your needs. This routine is being written in VB.NET

Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
Dim strUserAgent As String
Dim flag As String
flag = "0"
strUserAgent = Request.UserAgent.ToString().ToLower()
If (strUserAgent.Contains("iphone")) Then flag = "1"
If (strUserAgent.Contains("blackberry")) Then flag = "1"
If (strUserAgent.Contains("mobile")) Then flag = "1"
If (strUserAgent.Contains("windows ce")) Then flag = "1"
If (strUserAgent.Contains("opera mini")) Then flag = "1"
If (strUserAgent.Contains("palm")) Then flag = "1"
If (strUserAgent.Contains("android")) Then flag = "1"

If (strUserAgent.Length <> 0) Then
If (Request.Browser.IsMobileDevice = "True" And flag = "1") Then
End If
End If
End Sub

First Mobile Web site

It took 2 weeks to finish my first mobile website. It was quite interesting journey. First of all, jQuery Mobile is a new Javascript library and I was interested to implement it for new mobile site.

I discovered that current version of jQueryMobile does fully support with AJAX extensions all mobile platforms except Blackberry 5.

I had a problem with iPhone view. There is a quite good fix, which must be place in a head of the page to bring a picture to the stable condition on all mobile platforms:
