Hi Dave,

I've been looking into this as well and it seems media queries in CSS work well. Content is adapted to different device widths using something like:

@media only screen and (min-device-width: 320px) and (max-device-width: 480px) {
// css rules go here

You can exclude large images, for instance, with display:none.

Probably the best implementation I've seen of an adaptive mobile display is here: After poking through their CSS it looks like they used a similar rule.

There are other ways of doing it, like server side detection, but this seems the most common. This allows you to develop one theme package for many devices.
