    As per your requirement, you can develop a general ASP.NET web application which works absolutely fine with Mobile browsers.

    No need to develop WAP web application for Mobile devices. Now a days all Mobile devices are capable for displaying HTML markup.

    Add the following META tags for making general ASP.NET web application compatible for Mobile devices.



    <meta name="HandheldFriendly" content="true" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />

    Check the following link,


    Hope it helps u...

    i have gone thr' the link u provided

    in hwich u have stated that a normal asp.net website with some meta tags works well on mobile using some stimulators

    i got a reference to download Microsoft Mobile Internet Toolkit (MMIT) and use it

    i culd not find a link to downlad the toolkit

    2) with the asp.net application i will need to register the domain name & upload the pages

    is there any way that i can just develop it fr mobile applicaton

    but then whts the difference in WAP development & asp.net(mobile)

    whts SMARTDEVICE in VS2008 using c#

    i am very new , i had opened a SMARTDEVICE page which contains a image of a mobile & each button has events

    which is better to use
