The "net" is closing in for those who have no mobile offering for mobile users. Apparently Google is including an icon in the search results (test mode only at the moment) which indicates if a site is optimised for mobiles.
How they determine a mobile optimised page is up for grabs at the moment but it's another step by Google towards favouring mobile optimised sites.

I hope that doesn't mean sites that serve separate stylesheets based on OS, because that ignores sites that design to do well on any and all devices, particularly taking in to account the trend towards higher resolution and larger screens on mobile devices.

Not having seen it "yet" ..I have to ask, is the icon in serps, clearly visible and does it convey it's "message" "mobile optimised site" on a mobile phone screen ..at 800 x 400 ? ( 4" screen ) or below ?..
