Verizon & Google conpired to make Droid not a full browser
No, it cant be the website responsible. Blackberry storm can get the full website if you enter the regular web address. But Android redirects to mobile versions -- check out Stock Market News, Business News, Financial, Earnings, World Market News and Information - CNBC.com on both devices and see!
Responsibility must be Verizon's with Google cooperation since I understand there is a setting in the Browser to change from "Mobile view" in Sprint Android phones.
I guess if one wants the real internet, one must stick with Apple or quit doing business with Verizon

No setting yet. Hopefully they fix it.

"They" wont "fix it" -- "they (Verizon & Google)" did it intentionally to deny users a real full browser -- apparently Sprint didn't push Google to deny real full Android browser to their customers since there is a setting to choose whether you want redirect or not in Sprint Android phones

Actually you can do this in the browser
1.type "about:debug" in browser address bar
2. Nothing will happen, this is fine
3.go to browser settings (menu button - settings)
4.scroll down to UAString and select "desktop"
5.type desired website into adress bar
And whala, desktop mode
Note: you must repeat steps for each new window or session

Get Dolphin Browser HD and you can change the setting to make the site think you are not a mobile device. Hit menu button.... more...
settings... go to user agent and select desktop and the problem is solved.
Now when you click a link to a deep page on a website it will not redirect you to the mobile home page because the server will not think you are a mobile phone. I have no idea why anany site would still think that anyone finds redirection from a deep link of an article to the mobile home page would be at all useful.
