This infinite loop happens ONLY in Mobile View of IE9. The desktop view works fine.

I'm having problems visiting this site using www.appleinsider.com within Windows Phone 7 Mango. I'm using Internet Explorer Mobile 9. The browser would go into an infinite loop trying to load www.appleinsider.com and then iphone.appleinsider.com then back to www.appleinsider.com, repeating. When it's in this loop, I just see a blank white page. It doesn't happen on my android phone. I don't understand if it's an issue with the site's detecting the phone's UA string or the IE9 itself.

According to wikipedia:

Code:

Internet Explorer Mobile 9 on Windows Phone can be set to either "mobile view" or "desktop view". When in mobile view, the UA string of Windows Phone is given by:
Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows Phone OS 7.5; Trident/5.0; IEMobile/9.0; <DeviceManufacturer>; <DeviceModel>)
The UA string in desktop view looks almost similar to that of the Internet Explorer 9 running on Windows 7 with some additional identifiers.
Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/5.0; XBLWP7; ZuneWP7)


Thank you.
