I've seen websites which support android devices and other smart phone platforms and formats the page in a more attractive way to accommodate the screen size etc. However are there web developers who design and build web sites specifically for the android platform? like a website designed to manage a list of tasks, or a calendar specifically for mobile platforms. I'm interested in what direction the web is going to lean with the smart phone boom.

Hey Lance,

There are certainly areas where you do have to tailor an application or site to meet particular nuances of a specific device or mobile OS, but in the majority of cases the approach you apply for one device can be applied to another also. Things like varying device screen size and resolution (320x480 portrait is the roughly the size you expect in a standard smartphone) and less capable mobile browsers do throw a spanner in the works though :/

I've tried to answer a similar question in another approach, so if you have the time I'd recommend reading my answer there (I think that thread is going to be quite active).
