Note that 'fullscreen' and 'fullscreen' are two different things:

1. A fullscreen mode on desktop should typically be a paged media,  
applying any 'projection' style sheets to the page
2. The fullscreen mode on Sony Ericsson P990i, M600i and a number of other  
UIQ phones still apply 'handheld' if existent, or 'screen' if so set in  
the user's preferences. The 'fullscreen' mode on these devices just  
happens to use all of your viewport, but it is not 'fullscreen' in the  
sense you'd think.
