I am designing an interface for a mobile website and came across a very
basic question. Do you need back-buttons on the pages?
The primary phones I'm designing for (Sony Ericsson) have a designated back
key on the key-pad. Do all phones have this? (I've also tested on Nokia,
which do have one) If so, I'm inclined to remove them because they're mostly
page-clutter and the back buttons on the phone work very well.
The only reason to keep them that I can think of is for 'flow-back', i.e. on
pages with multiple instances such as '1 of 5' but often the back buttons on
those pages can be replace by a buton with a more descriptive label.
