I think they want a narrower layout for mobile reasons
But there's already a separate google app for those. At least I've got one on my iPad. It seemed to want to install itself.
And it isn't really any narrower. It's just got a smaller text area. Something in the page-- probably the black bar-- still forces a width of 1004px. (Safari says so, though I can't figure out how they derived the number. Looks right, based on scroll bar.)
