How do I show a different page layout for mobile vs. online on computer?

If I want to show a smaller, more compact layout on salesforce1 for my mobile users, but continue to show our current default view when users are using a computer to view salesforce, how do I do that? If you can only have one profile per user and one page layout per profile for a specific record type, how can I do this?
Hi Amy,

You can create a different profile for the mobile user and assign the new page layout to that user. But if you want it for the same profile there is no way currently out of box to do that in Salesforce1. 

Here is an idea posted on IdeaExchange in this regard:

Thanks, Y.Srinivas. That’s what I was afraid of. Is there a way with a Visualforce page to select one layout vs another based on profile+”mobile or not”? Regards, Amy Thropp DiversiTech Corporation Senior Sales and Marketing Specialist
Technically it can be done(You can look at Flex Page (" target="_blank)s). But it will quite a effort from development and testing plus you might lose some Salesforce1 funtionality on visual force like Publisher Action.
