Last year we had a similar topic and hardly anyone posted. I'm happy to see a year later that WebmasterWorld is finally catching up.
Newer smartphones sure can deliver full Web experiences, in many case with Flash. But just because modern phones can deliver a 1024 page properly doesn't mean that a user on a 320 screen wishes to zoom in. The mobile site has its uses. Don't require users to zoom in. It's painful.
Not a fan of trying to cram as many services as possible on a mobile sites. That's why we have apps. Put in the necessary on a mobile site. Remove the non necessary. If users want more they can always go to the full site on a larger device later. Phones are meant for on the go consumption, not total immersion.
