Berners-Lee said that the W3C is working on defining a set of standards that developers can use to build websites that work with mobile devices, as well as with desktop computers, so that the mobile Web doesn't break apart from the World Wide Web.
This week, the W3C also launched a new tool that developers can use to test their websites for compatibility with mobile devices.
The W3C's new tool, called the mobileOK checker, will look over code to see how well it follows the W3C's guidelines.

Today, W3C provides new means for people to create and find mobile friendly content. W3C invites Web authors to run the alpha release of the W3C mobileOK checker and make their content work on a broad range of mobile devices. The checker runs the tests defined in the W3C mobileOK Basic Tests 1.0 Candidate Recommendation.

I think the W3C are worried and the mobile web should break break apart from the World Wide Web.
Mobiles have much better UIs written in Java not HTML. Why would you want to browse a html webmail site on a mobile when the phone can pull down your emails and present them as texts and media using Java?
