Has anyone experience of setting up MOSS 2007 to optimise for mobile devices? How can I get up to speed on support for mobile devices? What does Sharepoint offer out of the box?
(would some kind person with rep add some tags e.g. mobile iphone pda)

If you are using WCM features of MOSS the best way is to do with variations, OTherwise we need to go ahead with the /m version of each site. this can be customizable also
Those are all probably great options. Here is a pure SharePoint 2007 option for you to start quick and see for yourself:
This will display the default text version of the page that SharePoint generates for you.
If you investigate further, I believe there are a few options when creating lists and pages that allow you to create a more mobile friendly version.
It might also be worth checking out a product called Mobile Entree, http://www.mobileentree.com/, which provides a rich cross device mobile interface on to SharePoint.
OOB SharePoint 2007 is not that good on mobile devices. For iPhone there are several apps or you can browse as normal.
For instance check out iShare in the app store.
