Well it’s debatable. The iPad is the fastest selling non-phone device and it is meant to be a tablet computer.

I think a nice “other” field would be good.

+1, if someone really wants their website to display/work well on mobile devices, then we’re already talking about developing a completely new, separate site…

I had a client once tell me, after finishing his website and sealing the contract, that it’s not displaying well on his mobile device. (though he never mentioned, when we first started, that he would need that as well)

I’ve told him that a mobile site is a whole new webdesign, so now he stopped crying that his site isn’t working well on his Blackberry ( :| )...

Agreed.

Mobile device themes are at best a category, not something for the browser compatibility list. Someday soon this may change, but right now I think this is accurate.

Apple comes out with a pointless device and somehow I’ll end up having to eventually buy one.

Great quote, I’ll be using that!

Get ready for some competition iPad. Several PC manufacturers are developing tablets that run full Win7 operating systems. I’d much rather have a tablet with a full OS than a gigantic iPad Touch :)

Haha, flame-bait fail. :)

And yeah the main problem I’ve noticed (aside from fixed positioning, which isn’t really the fault of the iPad but more a result of the touchscreen paradigm) is what Parallelus mentioned, where there are rendering glitches when the page is zoomed way out to fit the screen. But not much you can do about that.

Hey guys, I’m going to bring up our list of compatible browsers to Mark (our site manager) as I have a few thoughts of my own about it.

In regards to the whole iPad browser compatibility, I don’t think it should be included in the list primarily because as more tablets become available it won’t be possible to test in every single web-accessible device.

I mean, between the iPhone, iPad, Android phones, BlackBerry phones, upcoming (and existing) set-top boxes with built in browsers (like Google TV), upcoming (and existing) non-iOS tablets, etc., it’s just not possible.

What I would suggest, at some point, is a separate section where authors can list additional devices their themes/templates are compatible with. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a small section in the sidebar that says something like, “Also compatible with the following mobile devices:” with little icons for the iPhone, iPad, etc. Only the major platforms would likely have icons though.

The important part here though is that templates wouldn’t be able to be reviewed to ensure this. So it would entirely be up to authors to make 100% sure their item is actually compatible with the devices the list.

A potentially big problem would be that we would have no way to verify a buyer’s complaint for templates that don’t actually function properly with the listed devices.

Anyway, just some thoughts and stuff I’ll bring up with Mark.
