I am working on upgrading a classic ASP site to MVC with C# and want to support mobile devices with custom views. I have found www.handsetdetection.com from another thread. They have sample code about using the various methods, but no examples of how to integrate it into a MVC site.

1. Where is the best place to detect the device and perform the redirection? Do I need to do it for every page?

2. In their examples, it shows a request object. I'm not sure how to go about building it. I'd like to get an example of how to build the request object.

The articles got me thinking. I actually decided to put the detaction in Global.asax in the Session_Start method. Then I set a Session variable and check it for mobile device.

The Request took care of itself in Global.asax.
