For the nicest iPhone appearance you will need to change the layout 
somewhat.  I recommend using a framework like iUI (although the example 
that Matt cites doesn't appear to use an iPhone/Webkit framework it does 
use jQuery.)

I'm not currently using Roller and haven't contributed to the project in 
over a year, but I'd love to help you guys out because Roller is a great 
project and great people.  I can't promise to monitor this list closely, 
but if anyone is working on a theme or plugin that uses iUI and has 
questions or needs help I'm willing to walk an extra mile for Roller.  
Either post on the iPhoneWebDev Google Group or e-mail me directly.  If 
you give me a login and a blog with the WIP templates, I'm even willing 
to troubleshoot by editing the files directly via Roller.

iUI 0.40 (development release available) is using a simple theme 
mechanism, so I'd recommend looking at that.
