As far as the spec's concerned, there is no difference. Note that all  
properties are initially 'auto', and without any UA styles, the browser  
will behave as a "desktop" browser.

If you look at the informative section on the viewport meta element,  
you'll see that the current hack in mobile browsers can be modelled as a  
UA stylesheet:

@page is for paged media, @viewport is for continuous media. They don't
