QUEENS, N.Y. -
Redstormsports.com and CBS College Sports have released a smartphone-friendly version of Redstormsports.com, now available to mobile phone users.
Red Storm fans will be able to view all headline content (recaps and releases) and some associated content (box scores and bios of student-athletes) on the road via mobile phone.
Eventually, content will also include sport schedules in smartphone-friendly versions.
How This Works
When a user visits Redstormsports.com from their mobile phone (the front page or any sport page), an auto-detect script will determine what version of the site the user will receive. If the user is coming to Redstormsports.com via a fully-enabled web browser, then he/she will be delivered to the fully-enabled version of your site. If the user is not using a fully-enabled web browser on their mobile device, then the device will deliver a smartphone-friendly version of Redstormsports.com.
The appearance of the content will vary from smartphone to smartphone. In testing the mobile version templates, the Motorola Q, a Blackberry, a Treo Palm an IPhone and a HTC Touch were used.
