I do see what I think you're seeing, and I'm in the US. Every page comes through a Google Android URL and the page is stripped down and missing certain features. Every link goes to another Android url, too.
I think the best advice comes from suratmedia above, because the kind of treatment your site is getting is not uncommon at all in the mobile world. Them little computers just can't handle a full-blow website.
So either create a mobile version or block them, if that's your choice. You'll probably get more mileage out of playing the game, however. And since you're already getting mobile traffic, I'd say go for it - it's an opportunity.
Thanks tedster, precisely the reason i posted this issue to begin with. To hear a PROFESIONAL advice form a "trained eye" veteran and you hit the nail right on the head.
Yes i think it is precisely what you described in your post yet i still disagree with the notion that google can do with my content whatever they like and infringe on my copyrights in such away . I do get lots of Rim, iphone & ipad traffic and never saw this problem before. They get to see the pages exactly the way i intended them to be (minus the flash objects).
Seems like google yet again have zero respect to site owners copyrights. They are scrapping my content (full pages) and i will be seeking legal advice and compansation.
Last question asked. How do i block google android traffic and mobile crawl. I still want searches from blackberries and iphone. It is only android traffic and android scrapper that i wish to block.
Them little computers just can't handle a full-blow website.
Android is a latest smartphone. Should be more then cable of viewing web pages just as iPhone ipad or blackberries.
