I've just recently added the WPTouch plugin http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wptouch/ to my wordpress blog. While right now I may not be getting much mobile traffic, I can see that as the numbers of people with smart phones grows so will the traffic. I guess there is now a pro version, but the free version works great for me.

try http://www.gamingnoobie.com with your smart phone and check it out. (I haven't tried it with blackberries or treos yet)

I love WPTouch myself. ABout 5% of my readers are on a smartphone of some type, and this plugin covers many of the bases. For reading articles on an iPhone, Palm pre or Android device it's great.

I'll think about picking up the paid version. I'm currently working on a site conversion to WP3.0, so it might be something I look at adding.

WPTouch is nice because you can "override" any plugins that you have on your site that are incompatible with mobile views (like TinyMCE comments editor)

Other ones I've tried that are good:
WPTap. Basically similar to WPTouch. It didn't play nice with TinyMCEcomments so I had to ditch it.
Mobilepress - a bit out of date but totally works.

Whatever you choose, make sure that you test your site in mobile mode. While you might have your pages linked on a prominent top menu or sidebar on your desktop site, that may not be visible in mobile theme, and you will have to make sure that mobile users are able to access those pages of site content by another method on your mobile version.

Awesome - I installed WPTouch and even tested it on my HTC Hero (Android platform) and it looks pretty spiffy! Just going to add my name to the list - this plugin works quite nicely I must say.

Yes, I agree. My site looks stellar on my HTC Kaiser (AT&T Tilt) running Windows 6.1, my buddies Droid, and another friends iPhone (who asked what it all meant but said it looked 'pretty').
