    Hi,

    ASP.NET Mobile Web Forms are depreciated in VS 2008 itself. Actually those are desinged for WAP enabled devices!

    Now a days all mobile browsers are advanced, which has capability of rendering HTML content.

    NOTE: If you still want to use ASP.NET Mobile you can download it and use in VS 2008, where as it is not possible in VS 2010.

    You can check the ASP.NET Technology Evangelist blog for more information!

    General ASP.NET websites works absolutely fine in all Mobile browsers. Even HTML5 is supporting in some of latest devices like Apple iPhone etc.,

    Hope it helps u...

    Hi,

    if you want to go for mobile development I suggest you take a look at ASP.NET MVC 4 which has mobile integrated all the way. Take a look at this interesting screencast: Progressively enable the mobile web with ASP.NET MVC 4, HTML5, and jQuery Mobile.

    Grz, Kris.

    Hey Rick,

    The development of technologies and mobile devices seems to have left web forms behind I’m afraid. XIII is correct and you should go down the MVC4 road. I’ve got a site up and running in MVC3 and jQuery Mobile which works great, but I think some of the features of MVC4, especially the offline manifest are going to change mobile development completely.

    Cheers,

    Mike.
