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!

Cheers,

Kris

Brian Fling's book is pretty good for the beginning-intermediate
level. In addition to the expected how-to instruction, he makes some
side commentary that confirmed hunches I had about the industry, the
kind of things you usually only learn in the hallways at
conferences...

I have the Google phone (G1) with the android operating system. Gosh I
love this phone! I'd have to say the two mobile sites that I like are
mtv.com and photobucket.com.

MTV has so much information crammed on its desktop version, it's
almost refeshing to see elegant labeling and use of color as means of
organizing in the mobile version.

Photobucket, for the number of thumbnails it shows on the screen, is
still a pleasure to use.

At risk of being repetitive, I've got a few recommendations for
learning. D4M (link below) is intended to be a central place for
mobile design resources, patterns, books, etc. There are a hundred
pages and several off-site links and book recommendations.

We're soliciting contributions to the wiki and also planning the 2010
conference. Sponsorships for either are welcome.
