The SDKs are platform-dependent, and have varying degrees of support
for features of the phone. Some that I am aware of:
* There is a Python interpreter for the Symbian S60 project.
* For Android, there is http://code.google.com/p/android-scripting/
* No experience with Python on the iPhone, but people point to this:

All in all, it is undesirable, IMHO, to program with Python on a
mobile phone. Aside from generally unsatisfactory support, the
Python interpreter adds an overhead.
