Your company website must be readable in today’s smart phone browser applications period. If it’s not rendering correctly or is too slow to load then you have a problem. The good news is that unless you have some crazy programming on your site it should be acceptable with the better smart phones. But if you have wide tables, huge images, pop ups, etc. it makes it a nightmare for browsers and if you are using flash then forget about the iPhone users as of this writing they cannot see flash.
