I'm curious what status code I should be using when redirecting a mobile browser that hits and is redirected to I feel like a 301 (Moved Permanently) isn't quite right, but none of the others sound appropriate either.

I would use 303 See Other myself, however 300 Multiple Choices (with a properly-formed body describing the various choices) might also be appropriate (although I've never used this myself so have no knowledge of how well-supported it is).

I'd go 302 which is pretty much the default redirect.
