I don't have a internet enabled cellphone ( heck I don't even have a cellphone I hate them ) so I can't test this.

Does Adsense show for Cellphone users?

I'd hope not.

I tested with few models and it doesn't work. Probably with some fancy new models it does.

The last time I looked the combination of javascript and iframed used for AdSenses wasn't supported.

However, if you try Opera, you can emulate various cellphone browsers and see for yourself.

For Opera display of Adsense ads on handheld devices may depend on the styling of the site. If your sites does not have a stylesheet for handheld media, Opera will use its Small Screen Rendering technology (SSR). In SSR mode iframes are basically removed.

However, if you have a stylesheet for handheld media, Opera will show the page as styled by you, including iframes and Adsense ads.

You can try this for yourself by running the desktop edition of Opera. SSR technology is included in this version of the browser and can be activated by pressing Shift+F11, or by selecting View->Small Screen from the menus.

It's interesting how you can actually use the desktop version of Opera to test and improve how your site appears on handheld devices running Opera.

Cool, indeed :)
