Different form fields: mobile v. computer browsers?

We are creating a page which includes an input field asking for a
user's e-mail address paired with a second field asking them to
retype it to confirm.
This page will also be offered for users visiting with a mobile
browser and we have been debating whether to drop the confirmation
field for mobile users since it would seem to be more of a nuisance
in that context.
Is the assumption that we should drop these "luxury" fields for
users with mobile browsers a good one? On the one hand, it saves them
time and effort. On the other hand, it may allow for increased user
error when submitting e-mail addresses.
Related to this, does anyone know of any good resources (free or
paid) that collects best practices for IxD for mobile browsing?
