    Sarah, you make some very good points. I think we should especially consider the bandwidth loading lots of extra content takes. Data plans are still incredibly expensive and 3g is not ubiquitous folks ( try living in a rural area)

    One other way of achieving a redirect – conforming to what is a better user experience as Simon suggests (and I wholeheartedly agree) is to use a .htaccess file

    if just iPhone you could do

    RewriteEngine On

    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} ^.iPhone.$
    RewriteRule (.*) http://m.shaunhare.com/$1

    Another point I was told javascript (learnt from one of Andy Clarke’s workshops hat tip Dan Rubin) would also be used to lose the address bar often desired on web apps

    <script type=“text/javascript” charset=“utf-8”>
    		window.onload = function() {
    		  setTimeout(function(){window.scrollTo(0, 1);}, 100);
    		}
    </script>

    Does the head tag now do that without the js? – must try that.

    Thanks for sharing your practical experience.
