Prototyping New Responsive Mobile UNIX.COM

I'm working on updates to the mobile phone view, and it's going to look much better I think. Here are some current prototypes:

When I get time today, I will redesign the mobile "who is online" page. Then, I plan to redesign how posts and threads are displayed.

This is going to be fun project to get the forums looking good in mobile!

PS: I have decided to also redesign all the man pages so they look great on mobile as well. That way anyone can easily read man pages on the mobile when working.

Looks good. One thought I have seen with some pages designed for mobile usage - that there is a choice (defaulted to mobile) for how user wishes to view the pages. This would allow a user to click and access in 'classic' mode, for whatever reasons the user may have.
While helping someone with one of our mobile apps, I was trying to explain where to find things on the screen (while I was on my pc and she was on her phone) when I realized things are different. I had her switch to 'classic' so we could determine if it was an access right issue (ability to see expected options) or an issue of the 'mobile' app.
Just a suggestion, although unsure if this is possible.

This feature already exists in the browser tool bar (right side, top) in all modern mobile browsers.
