Mobile sites

iPhone 4.0 by Robert Scoble  

Many databases that Curtin subscribes to have mobile sites to allow better viewing of content from a mobile device.

To get to a mobile version of a website, there is usually nothing in particular that you have to do. If the website has a mobile version, devices such as smartphones and tablets are generally auto-detected and automatically directed to the mobile version of the site.
