How to make mobile version of company website?

Hi, I'm about to begin creating a mobile version of our company's website, and I have some questions.  I've spent many hours reading and researching online, but I can't find some of the answer I need. 1.  How can I test a mobile website locally?  Are there emulators I can download?  Can I plug a phone into my PC and test from the device?  I'd like to see how the website looks on the device locally so I can make changes accordingly. 2.  With the different screens and resolutions on mobile devices, what is the best width to use for the page layout?  Is there a set width of pixels that is a standard to follow, or should it be set at 100%? 3.  What is the best way to handle mobile browser detection?  So far I've found that I should add code to the Page_Load event of the Master page of our website that checks Request.Browser.IsMobileDevice and redirects to the mobile site if this returns true.  Is this the best way? These are my biggest issues with getting started.  Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

How to create a windows mobile (Smart Device) .Cab installer

A Cab file is the default setup format for Windows CE and Windows Mobile devices (similar to windows .msi files). You probably already have installed several application using .cab files, and are familiar with the concept. One point which is often unknown is that .cab files are processed by wceloader.exe, and it can only install one .cab file at a time. That means we cannot have nested .cab files. It doesn't mean we cannot have .cab files contained by another .cab, but the contained .cab files will not be installed during the installation of the container .cab. We should install it manually after the container .cab file installation has been completed.

There are two ways to create a cabinet (.Cab) file. The traditional one, and the friendly VS Smart Device Cab project which doesn't require additional coding, but which also relies on the traditional one at low-level.

Go Mobile: Create Compact, Robust Mobile Apps with SQL Server CE 2.0 and the .NET Compact Framework


Developers have myriad options when it comes to creating solutions for mobile devices. One of the greatest challenges facing mobile developers is finding a compact yet robust local storage solution.

How to create Asynchronous website-make the site work faster?

Hi,I developed an ASP.NET 3.5 website to read a few XML files generated by a third party software and convert them to a single Excel Book. The entire process takes more than 1 HOUR and even before completing the entire work, the system comes back with a message like - "Page cannot be displayed" and it fails. So, I am planning to make this website an Asynchronous site (I think if I make this site asynchronous it will work faster and will not stop execution before completing - new ideas are welcome.) I am new to this concept. Can anyone help me with some examples of how to convert a normal website to Asynchronous website? At present my site has 3 tiers and the reading of XML pages and writing them into Excel are happening in the Data Access Layer.Thanks

Creating a mobile version of a MOSS 2007 site?

Hi, We've created a MOSS 2007 WCM public site for one of our clients.  Now, they want a mobile version of the site where they can custom what shows up on mobile devices; the content will be different (no images, Flash; some text may be changed; some web parts may not show, etc.)  What's the best approach?  I know about using "/m" to redirect to mbllists.aspx and I've read about how it uses rendering templates, but I can't find anything about controlling what content actually gets displayed.  Oh, and we have both English and Spanish versions of our site (.../en-US/pages/... and .../es-MX/pages/...) Thanks for any suggestions.  - Ed.
