Such an application can be made using rather more general tools such as the combination of: jQuery Mobile, CSS and HTML5
(there are books dedicated to jQuery Mobile), I think you can develop Android application using Visual Studio, but I am not
sure about the language, as I dont think that VB can be used for such different platforms
any mobile with a web browser (all smartphones have 1) are able to open any web site that can be viewed
in normal desktop/laptop comuter
If you want to develop web application for mobiles (not the typical web site), then Yes it is possible, but again
not sure about VB able to do it for cross platform
However windows mobile OS version applications can be developed using VB

General ASP.NET website works fine in all Mobile browsers[Apple iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry etc.,]. Just add the following META tag to make the website mobile compatible -
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width" />
Regarding developing ASP.NET Mobile webapplications, check the following links -
You can't develop cross platform apps using VB.NET! It allows to develop application which can be installed on Windows Phone devices!
But, if you choose to develop using C#, then we have Xamarin - http://xamarin.com/
Hope it helps u...
