Commuter Lit wants your (very) short fiction and poetry posts a new short story, novel excerpt or poem each day from Monday to Friday, specially formatted to read on a mobile device (smart phones, iPads, Blackberries). Of course, you can also access the stories and poems from the website at any time.

"Our focus is on works of fiction or poetry that can be enjoyed during a 20- to 30-minute public-transit commute to work. And because we know your taste in reading material is varied and sophisticated, we plan to surprise you by selecting samples of not only literary fiction, but sci fi, fantasy, horror, mystery, thriller, romance and experimental combinations thereof." 

Fiction submissions should be 500 to 4,000 words, but I'd guess that, for a mobile devices like a smart phone, the shorter, the better.  Also, twice a year, they plan to publish The Best Of in hard-copy form.

Submit on-line here:
