JQuery & CSS - Screen Size Play Nicely

Hello all,

I would like to have a button that matches the width of the screen if on a mobile.  Else a maximum of 500px.

I have used the following code but it looks daft on phones that have stupidly tight pixels, such as the iPhone retina display:

.button, .button:visited {
      width: 100%;

So, can I use jQuery to establish if it is a mobile device.  If it is then have it fill the screen, else pop it at 500px.

Any help to achieve this would be greatly appreciated.  Many thanks, Alan.
