Like most things, I think people need to consider a sites audience as well. Everyone can get excited about smartphones but when you look at the overall world numbers and which phones are out there, the numbers are quite different. The heaviest web users will be on newer smartphones but that still may not be everyones user.
The issue I have with offering a altered main version site is that is still may be a bloated page that doesn't load on a poor connection in a remote place. But that goes back to your audience again and how important access is with slower speeds.
I have tried to stay ahead of mobile and created what I thought was a great mobile site. Very fast with just the most important content that would be useful on the road. Hardly anyone used it and I just saw the mobile users on my main site keep increasing quite a bit.
