I'm a bit of a mobile fanatic now, so I will gladly provide some input.
iPad 2 (Tested with Chrome and Safari)
Browsing on the current build in portrait mode on an iPad 2 is a game breaker, the menu becomes deformed when you click on the more button. In both
portrait and landscape mode I am noticing that sometimes when scrolling the contents roll over top of the menu and it looks bad. The fly-out effect
on the content seems a little weird, at least on my device its near instant and you can barely tell it happened however on an older device I wonder if
it would be a needless slowdown?
Samsung Galaxy S2 Player (Native Browser and Firefox)
Layout is broken in both viewing modes in both browsers, slow and nearly impossible to navigate
Motorola Photon Q (Android phone, fully up to date tested with Native Browser and Chrome)
Pretty much the same issues as I had with the S2 Player, its very touchy, the menu while easy to see on the screen is not very responsive.
Of these three the tablet experience seems to be the best as long as its done in landscape mode. Overall the layout works well given the limited test
we have here, editing profile fields may be another story completely on a mobile device.
One question I have is that under some older devices doing a file upload from the device did not work due to security models and sandboxing, from a
quick test thats been solved in the latest Android release however it seems iOS is still hesitant to allow access to the filesystem from Safari, will
that become an issue for mobile users of the new layout?
