Mobile phone browsers (droid) get new serp changes first?

Have any of you guys monitored your keywords via your mobile phone (I'm using the Droid phone) and noticed a difference in the SERPS between you cell phone and your home computer?

Since beginning of January, whenever a ranking change would occur, I would notice it first on my droid phone (after being logged out) and then a day or two later, in the SERPS when the same query was run on my home computer.

Is there any correlation between the two or am I just experiencing an anomaly?

I'm floating this theory around too.
Don't have a big enough cross-section of droid users to tell for sure, but it would make sense.

Do you this this is a good indication that serp changes for a particular keyword are on the horizon?

Interesting, I haven't done formal comparisons but I'll keep my eye on that.

I just don't use my handset enough, however, i'm sure that the servers are not going to be the same, serving different SERPs to my desktop, so the results are likely to be different.
