The developers' site of Yahoo provides an interesting list
of "Best Practices for Speeding Up Your Web Site": 

http://developer.yahoo.com/performance/rules.html

Unsurprisingly, there is considerable overlap with what 
can be found in comparable guidelines from other firms,
and with the MWABP as well. However, it is still 
instructive to look at their detailed justifications and at
the rules that do not appear in the MWABP.

There are two interesting guidelines that are specifically 
for mobile devices only: 

Keep Components under 25K (because, among other
issues, the iPhone does not cache larger resources -- an
issue I had already seen mentioned here and there; these
25K are as well quite compatible with usual BP for mobile
devices).

Pack Components into a Multipart Document (with the
caveat that one must check whether the device supports
multiparts).

A quick cross-check might be in order, if it has not been
done before.
