comment What is the standard icon for “smartphone” and "old-fashioned phone?
OK so those icons are those for the OS's you're going to support, that keeps them clear and simple. Apps are written for each device, however if you mean a mobile site then if its coded well and uses device detection you should aim to offer an experience for all.

comment What is the standard icon for “smartphone” and "old-fashioned phone?
might be useful to explain why you'd want to do this? If I've a phone it can make calls and most likely has the ability to access the internet so in the users mind they are one in the same - their phone is no different to someone else's.

comment Should we always make every Link/Button atleast 44X44 size in Mobile site, According to iOS Human Interface Guidelines?
My thoughts exactly, I know its good practice, but other than maybe help how many users look at the legal / privacy stuff anyway?

comment Are carousels effective?
@Alex G and zzzzBov - The type of client you refer to often needs to witness first hand the implications of their requirements or stubbornness on the site that they are responsible for. Sources and citations that contradict the norm or go against what the 'competition do' hold little weight. To disregard what is seen to be the norm is usually quite uncomfortable for the person who's career is directly related to the success of a product or service. Of course in some situations a carousel is exactly the right means to deliver content and so we need to try and importantly test every situation.

comment What's a good alternative to flags for depicting internationalisation as an option?
This type of 'switch' is most probably best handled by client settings in that they have already set their language so we should use that. Of course you need a fall back to a default if this fails with the ability to allow the user to select their preferred language. At this stage it's probably not valid to offer a permanent list of languages in the UI but offer language selection via a modal or overlay similar to how MSN asks you your location to deliver local news content. Sometimes I fear that in UX we try to solve thing that are solved more elegantly by employing whats available to us.
