Mobile site CMS exists as modules, features or add-ons or even discrete systems of larger CMSs that are capable of offering multi-channel delivery of content. There are specific and unique constraints as far as mobile content delivery is concerned and the major constraint is the size of the screen which is small, the variable capacities of the devices and also small storage capacity. In addition to these, the wireless bandwidth is limited and the device processes too are comparatively weak.

Mobile content management system comes with a few key features and they include:
- Delivery of content in multi-channel,
- Templating system that is specialized, and also
- Delivery of content that is based on location.
Delivery of content in multi-channel enables the users to accomplish two things simultaneously…deliver the appropriate content to the various mobile phones, desktop web browsers and other devices too along with managing a content repository that is centrally located. All this content is saved in its raw format so that it can be applied as per the requirements of the specific device.
Templating system that is specialized will cater to an expansive range of target devices that have varying limitations as well as varying capacities too. Multi-site and multi-client are the two approaches through which the templates could be adapted. In the former approach, the mobile site is displayed on the targeted sub domain, for instance, mobile.sitename.com. In the latter approach, one can see the various versions of the site in the same domain but the templates presented depend purely on the device at the client-end that he is using to view.
In delivery of content that is based on location, the target content is provided to the mobile devices on the basis of the physical location. Right now, Global Positioning System…GPS, is the one that offers the location based services to the umpteen numbers of users.
