            Bug ID: 62222
           Summary: Mobile devices aren't always redirected to the proper
                    mobile search results page
           Product: MobileFrontend
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: stable

If a mobile device (tested on Kindle 3 and ipod 2 with Opera Mini) issues a
search for a non-existent page (e.g. "Georgias") with one of the following URLs

   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki?search=Georgias

or

   http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?search=Georgias

or 

   http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php/?search=Georgias


then the desktop search results page will be served, not the mobile version. 

If the URL

   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/?search=Georgias

is used instead, or if one searches for an existing page, then the proper
mobile version is served.

This is especially serious on the Kindle, since that device presumably offers
free world-wide wireless Wikipedia access, but it issues all search requests in
the first format above and the resulting search results pages are unusable.
