Not too sure about that "automatic adoption" - with the way sites are (ie, usually very messy code-wise) is it smart to think software can shrink-wrap them for mobile?

Was over at the GSM conf in Barcelona recently and while there's loads of cos trying things like this, ultimately a web site will have to be able to sniff whats requesting its pages & serve up accordingly.

One size certainly can't fit all - at least for the next 2-3 years... imho
