ASP.Net apps for hand-held devices newbee !!

Hi,

I already got a nice Web application running and need to adapt it for iPaqs,
Smartphone and Blackberry.

Can you suggest a better newsgroup if any and some links to find best
practices and help on how to start ??

Among questions:
- I want the Default.aspx from the main site to redirect if Windows CE is
detected, what it is the best way t do it ? will it work on any hand-held
platform ??

- Guidelines and principles about layout and display

- things no to do on hand-held platform like framesets, javascript....

Thanks a lot !!

Regarding the ability to determine if Windows CE is accessing your
Defualt.aspx you can check the Request.ServerVariables("http_user_agent")
to see what is displayed. ex.

UserAgent = Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_USER_AGENT")
IsPocketPC = (InStr(UserAgent, "Windows CE") > 0)

As far as the other questions go, I do not have much experience with this.
I am sure there are a few articles on MSDN about this. I hope the above
info helped.
