I know its a bit late, CI 2.0 has been out since January 28th, 2011, but lets talk about it anyway and recapitulate some of the new features of this framework. The new stuff is great, and this time I believe it deserves a second look if you are not much into CI.

This is why I wrote a small but powerful function to properly detect a wide range of mobile devices and redirect to an special content accordingly.
