Mobile Design

Hi Guys,

I am interested to hear the thoughts of those on the list with
regards to Mobile Design - i.e. designing for Mobile devices such as
the iPhone or Blackberry.

Do you have a favorite mobile site, or sites?

Do you have any recommended books on mobile design best practices?

I am just interested about the thoughts of the list on this emerging
field, and on how you see it progressing over the coming weeks,
months and years!

handle it as is.
