It’s advised you customize your account before using Adwords on your phone by logging into your account on your computer and choosing specific items you want to monitor closely(budgets, impressions, clicks, etc).

Adwords mobile was created so you can quickly access the essentials of your account so if you need full access you are going to need to switch over to the desktop version.  As of now Adwords Mobile will be used as the default for a select amount of English language advertisers.  If you want to try adwords mobile now make sure to direct your Android, iPhone, or Palm Pre to http://adwords.google.com/dashboard/Dashboard.
