Visual Studio doesn't provide the Project Template of Mobile Web Applications, so you have to select the ASP.NET website empty template & then you can add the Mobile Web Form, Mobile Web User Control, Mobile Web Configuration files in to it.

again copy past .... from my another post (http://forums.asp.net/t/1303527.aspx)
Today most of our phone supports xhtml so If u can develop ur application using xhtml-mp then it will be support more phones.
The following link will help u a lot regarding the mobile application development.
"XHTML MP (XHTML Mobile Profile) is the markup language of WAP 2.0. XHTML MP is a subset of XHTML, which is the combination of HTML and XML. Our XHTML MP tutorial starts with an introduction of XHTML MP and an overview of the relationship between various
markup languages such as WML, XHTML, XHTML Basic and XHTML MP. Then it covers the major differences between WML and XHTML MP, XHTML MP's syntax rules and document structure, etc. In addition, our XHTML MP tutorial includes coverage about lists, tables, anchor
links, selection lists, input elements and the posting of data from mobile devices to the server."
U can use openwave simulator: http://developer.openwave.com/dvl/tools_and_sdk/phone_simulator/
to test your application .
if u have time please discover http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_browser

Here are the steps,
1. select the project/solution from the solution explorer
2. right click on it, and select "Add new item..."
3. a dialog box will appear, there you can select "Mobile Web Form", "Mobile Web User Control", "Mobile Web Configuration File".
It works in VS2005, and it would be same for VS2008 i think.
