Mobile Publishing Site Options for a Public Facing Web Site : Can you help?
Tom Skowronski asks : How do people create mobile versions of SharePoint publishing sites that have been heavily branded and are used as public facing web sites?
At all the conferences MSFT gets people all pumped up about using SharePoint for their public facing web sites, but there doesn't seem to be a way to create a mobile version. The default mobile versions are really intended for team sites and are not what one would expect from the mobile version of a site. Is there some sort of plug-in or web part? We are going with variations for an initial pilot, but it seems a bit involved for this purpose.
