Amazon’s iphone site

Just went to from my iPhone to search for a bluetooth headset and was greeted with an iPhone version of the world’s biggest online marketplace!

Its good to see more and more websites developing an iPhone version.

I am just thinking about the future. Being a software developer, I have used quite a few CMS and frameworks which automatically deliver different versions of a page based on the user agent of the browser. Usually they have templates for kiosks, wml and flash/non flash versions of pages. I see another category getting added there. With the much anticipated launch of the Amazon’s kindle and Google’s android, the list is bound to expand as more and more buyers go mobile.

I would like for this process to be automated. I mean the app should be intelligent enough to detect the client’s profile and render the page without using a template.

Thats flexible :).
