Hi guys, I'm using SP2007 with the native search.

I tried to surf my SP sites on my mobile devices, it looks decent but look and feel def can be improved.

I like to have 1 page eg: http://mobile/search that will show a search textbox to allow me to input my keyword and then after clicking search, it will show all the results.

Is this possible? If yes, how do I do it to show the results neatly.

I reviewed those, which is the one that has a search box that will allow me to key in a keyword to search the entire site.

Thanks.

In MOSS 2007, there are very limitation on SharePoint search and Mobile devices as it was introduced first starting from these versions.

A lot has been improved in SP2010, where you can define search scope which can be visible on mobile devices.

In terms of MOSS 2007, search has very limited options which are already provided in MS KB i mentioned earlier.
