I am searching for a development framework to create web applications specifically for use by mobile devices.
What would be the best place to start? I was considering ruby on rails.

A few things to remember;
- you'll have to test your site on the actual handsets you want to target, not just emulators
- pages will need to be single column due to limited horizontal space
- pages will need to be light (small filesize) due to limited bandwidth
- pages will need to account for possibly limited input options (e.g. device doesn't have a keyboard)
