How to prevent a WAP site from appearing in Web Results ONLY?
Can you differentiate between Mobile Search & Web Search?

My initial thought was just to use Robots.txt. But, does that remove the site from Mobile Web search also? It looks like there is a specific WAP mobile bot named "Googlebot-Mobile". I'm wondering if a webmaster can prevent his WAP site from appearing in Web Results ONLY? The objective would be to appear in Mobile Search, and not have the WAP site appear in Web-based search.
