    I have a quick question? Is query viewable on an iphone?
    How about other phones such at the google phone running Andrioid?
    Or how about any other mobile browsers?

    Has anyone done any research?

    I have a client asking me about it and I have no way of testing.
    I’ll google of coarse but this forum was my first thought.

    Thanks for any help or insight you can give me.

    If you’re looking to deliver content on a wide variety of mobile devices then the best advice I can give is not to use any JavaScript library. They’re largely untested and size will definitely become an issue across slow mobile networks.

    Your best chance of getting anything working is to use JavaScript and the DOM without any abstractions; this will allow you to target and rectify issues directly.

    PPK has a bunch of mobile compatability tables that might interest you:

    ps. If you’re only looking to target the iPhone then jQuery will probably work; still I wouldn’t suggest it…

    pps. Developing websites for a wide variety of mobile devices is tricky business; the best thing to do is go back to basics and build up from there.
