There's clientside sniffing in a few places:

The redirection happens in http://www.skai.gr/Themes/1/Default/mobile/javascript/redirect_mobile.js?v=2, depending on the value of $.browser.mobile which is defined in http://www.skai.gr/Themes/1/Default/mobile/javascript/detectmobilebrowser.js, Object {mozilla: true, version: "18.0", mobile: false}

The good news is that script is from http://detectmobilebrowsers.com/ and the latest version recognizes the B2G UA string. So they just need to update that and we should be good.

There's also http://www.skai.gr/Themes/1/Default/Js/Mobile/mobile-detect.min.js (unminified version here: https://gist.github.com/miketaylr/7200866) which detects us isTierGenericMobile: true, but AFACT there isn't any redirection happening as a consequence of this script.
