INTRODUCTION

This article discusses the mobile browsers and devices that are supported in Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and in Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. Mobile pages refer to the pages that you can access by using any of the following URLs:
  • http://URL/m/
  • http://URL/_layouts/mobile/default.aspx
Note To use the http://URL/m/ URL, you must enable it by using the following command:

By default, the http://URL/_layouts/mobile/default.aspx URL works without any additional enabling.
