Building mobile theme for Symbian devices

Hi - we run an eCommerce site and want to create seperate themes for mobile devices. We plan to build for the Symbian OS operating systems.

My question is do we serve resolution-specific CSS files? I presume we would create a fluid design that scales horizontally to be able deploy a single design to many different mobile devices. Or do we serve device-specific CSS files? Where we have to check what device the visitor is using when they enter the site?

With the Symbian OS and in particular the Nokia phones it runs on does anyone know the main phone resolutions it caters for? What does the Symbian OS support in terms of cursors (keypads, fingers)?

The HTTP_USER-AGENT string on the server will identify the client/browser, and allows your web site to adapt accordingly.
