    Hi,

     General asp.net web site works absolutely fine for all Mobile devices[HTML Capable browsers]. There are no special tools to develop Mobile web applications. If you have VS 2008/Expression Web, it's enough.

    You may need Mobile emulators to check your Website on different Mobiles. Apple iPhone,Android does not provide emulators. But BlackBerry has excellent tool called BlackBerryPlug-In for VS 2008 .Check the below link for more details.

    Add the following code in the <head> section of your page, to display website perfectly in Mobile browsers(i mean to avaoid display issues).

    <meta name="HandheldFriendly" content="true" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0,user-scalable=1.5;" />


     

    Hope it helps u...
