Right now on my 3gs & iPod touch I can only view certain sites, ie ny post, eonline, maybelline, etc in their "mobile format". After some research I found out that is because the Safari version on those products contains a string intheir programing that tells the server you're visiting that you're on a mobile device.
Assuming that the ipad is going to use the iPhone os, will we only be able to see these particular pages in their mobile format?
I hope someone can tell me what they know on this subject because it's a real sticking point for me. I know a lot of people are annoyed about tge "flash" issue, but I think this is way more important. I am a gi-normous apple fan, but they can't tout it as the best way to view the web if all we're going to get in some places is watered down mobile sites.
