In this section, there is a selection for
"High grade cell phones like iPhone" and "normal cell phones"
I just tested today an Android cell phone with 480x320 display in a shop.
My web site just looks complete normal, You see a 480x320 pixel sized pard of the screen, it's easy possible to scroll around,
really no motivation to make an extra site for mobile content.

Not everyone has a site that's optimized for 480 x 320 pixels--or eyes that can read the standard NYTimes.com home page on a typical cell phone.

- Do people click on ads when they're using mobile phones?
- More specifically, are they likely to click ads related to your topic when they're using mobile phones?
- Will enough users click on such ads to justify the time required to set up a mobile version of your site?
- Finally (and this isn't directly AdSense-related), would your content work better on mobile devices--and/or be more profitable--if packaged as an app than as a Web site?
I couldn't imagine people clicking AdSense ads in significant numbers though.
Personally, I think thick fingers are major cause of ad 'clicks' on mobile sites.
At my 480x320 test, I had always to scroll around moving my fingers on the touch screen.
Below my fingers, several times the ads. One wrong movement, and the touch would be a click.
At the browser is a zoom button.
Clicking the zoom out button, I can see all the 600 pixel width content area in the 480 pixel width touchscreen.
Since I use good sized font size, it's also easy to read.
I think surfing at less than 480x320 is absolut sensless
and with 480x320 and the zoom button, my site is easy useable.
So there seems to be no reason at all, to invest much time in a mobile version.
