Just did a little googling myself.  Apparently, session cookies are
supported, but persistent cookies (which we'd want here) aren't...

Yeah... I found a page that mentions checking HTTP_ACCEPT for
vnd.wap.wml.  That could be used as one check for wap phones. 
Unfortunately, my Palm failed my hacked-together check.  It did pass,
however, my check for the user agent.  But basically, to answer your
question, the "accept" header should do the trick in most cases.
