Research tools for mobile devices? (software & hardware)

Hi,

Can anyone recommend any software/hardware that they have heard of, or have experience with, as far as conducting user testing on mobile devices, i.e., tablets and smartphones?

I am wondering what's out there and what seems to be well reviewed or popular.

Thanks,

John Terceman

Effective design of reports

Can any of you point me to some good resources about best practices for designing interactive reports? We produce educational software for grade school kids and we are constantly generating usage reports, score reports, etc. for teachers and caregivers.

Documentation techniques in interaction design

I am writing a master thesis in regards to using concept mapping to support interaction desing processes. I would like to know what documentation techniques are mainly used in interaction design and can they be used through all stages, such as research, design, development and production stages?

Maybe you could also recommend articles touching upon this topic.
