Well, let's say I'm new to mobile communications under asp.net and Visual Studio 2008. We're planning on doing some asp.net work targetted for a Blackberry. Where's a good place to start with respect to development tools based around Visual Studio 2008?
Many thanks... -- Curt

- Create standard ASP.NET website with standard "Web Forms"
- Design the content for your mobile pages. Avoid images for fast loading. Avoid complex html structure. Stick to basics
- Different mobile has different capabilities (e.g screen size, image support, html support, xhtml support etc.). So it is very important that you know what type of device is trying to access your website and accordingly render required HTML/XHTML supported
by the mobile device.
To fetch mobile capabilities use .NET API it is a free ASP.NET mobile api which helps to integrate mobile devices with existing and future web sites. It makes use of WURFL
device database which is widely-accepted as the most advanced and up-to-date mobile device database available.
It has add-in for .NET web sites that'll automatically determine if a mobile device is accessing the site and redirect it to mobile specific content. You do not have to update any of your existing asp.net pages for same.
