hi all!

just wondering if anyone has book recommendations on designing
interfaces for mobile devices?

even though i've been doing ia for 9 years, it seems that i can't get
a job in mobile until i've done mobile (nice.) so i thought i'd do
some design work on my own to put in my book.

any suggestion would be most appreciated (i'll post all to the list)

Just the other day I noticed that Cameron Moll has a book on just
that coming out. I'm not sure what the ship date is but the site's up:

hi,

Designing for Small Screens Studio: Mobile Phones, Smart Phones, PDAs,
Pocket PCs, Navigation Systems, MP3 Players, Games Consoles (Design)
(Paperback)
by Carola Zwick, Burkhard Schmitz, Studio 7.5

it only gives a good overview but covers many important issues. You
can always check the reference list for more detailed information
about a item in particular.

this book is very well organised.

In the meantime, the site also has a book for mobile web design and
another book for mobile Java design.

Hi All,

I didn't dig into the archive to find the original post but I recall that someone asked about resources regarding design for mobile devices. I don't recall anyone mentioning Scott Weiss' book, "Handheld Usability."

The web site is http://handheldusability.com/

I have no financial interest, however am aware of the book's existence.

Peace,
Doug
