Building a mobile/cell phone site - what works?
I want to build a site for mobile/cell phones, I already have the perfect .mobi domain but I need to know what will work on it and what won't. I'd like to make a proxy list for phones (good idea eh?) and I'd like to use the database from one of my current list sites, it's easier that way for me. I do understand that some normal web code stuff won't work and they have to have different head/meta tags as well as smaller pages but I haven't found any 'dummies guide' sites with idiot proof instructions yet, suggestions or links welcome.
Some help and ideas would be welcome, as would offers of "I can do it for you" (if it's cheap, I'm a tightwad. I'm open to bargaining and barter tho'). I don't expect it to make much money, if any at all, but I would like to put adsense on it, they do have mobile ads. I want to think of it as more of a service so proxy users can use their own phones to get access to proxy lists when at work/school etc. so they don't have to try blocked listing sites to get new proxies. They might have to type in the urls to the PC's browser manually but at least they'll have the resourses to look them up first.
If it's a bad idea I'd like to know that too (but please be gentle/subtle).
If I can't be a good example, I'll just have to be a terrible warning...
