jQuery help needed

I'm inexperienced with jQuery or javascript, and am trying to implement a plug-in which is described at http://www.jquery4u.com/mobile/detect-mobile-devices-jquery/    My test page, at http://mauitradewinds.com/MobileDetect/test.htm , is supposed to return an appropriate alert, as to whether or not a mobile device is accessing the page.  Unfortunately, the alert always says that a mobile device is in use, whether or not it is.  Please advise me how to correct this.

BTW, I'm aware there are many other alternatives for detecting mobile browsers, but I would appreciate the chance to evaluate this particular one, starting with correcting my code.

Just for clarification, was that an issue with the javascript, or the way I invoked it on the htm page?

with the javascript AND the way you invoked it on the htm page

should be : window.check
and if(window.check)
and put FIRST <script src="jquery.min.js"></script>
and after any relative plugin (but nor problem, you're not using jQuery in the plugin...)
