I've been looking for a section in a mobile or other small screen GUI style
guide about adresses the actual style of menu options

For example, are there any conventions for using "title case - first word is
capitalized" vs "sentence case- just first word " on a small screen vs the
typical larger displays.

Thanks,
Michele

A great resource on mobile design and pattern%u2019s is Barbara Ballard%u2019s / Little Springs Design Mobile Patterns Wiki. You can find small screen menu designs and navigation samples there...

Ideally you should follow the dominant style on the handset in question.
(Most are sentence case.)

Apart from that, title case or sentence case is optional. But it's pretty
much english only. No other languages uses title case AFAIK.
