What is the status/prospects for WebGL on cellphones?   I can see that
the specification is aimed more at OpenGLES than full-up OpenGL, so
clearly this has been thought about.   Are there any test

a hold of to play with?

It's not Android or iPhone, but Nokia's latest firmware for their N900 smartphone supports WebGL by default in the built-in Gecko-based browser (somewhat to the surprise of the Mozilla guys, it seems).  I put together a video of some of the demos that run on it: <http://learningwebgl.com/blog/?p=2340>.  A summary: as you'd expect, it's behind where the desktop implementations are, but it works surprisingly well.
