Can anybody recommend some good books for UI design for mobile devices? I am moving over into this space and was looking for some good books to get up to speed.

I was looking at that one.

The other ones that I was looking at were;

Mobile Usability: How Nokia Changed the Face of the Mobile Phone by lindholm

Mobile and Wireless Design Essentials
by Mallick.

I haven't seen any others that caught my eye.

Hallo Wendy,

in the latest issue of ACM Queue Magazine the is a review for the book:

Designing Software for the Mobile Context: A Practitioner's Guide
(Computer Communications and Networks)
Roman Longoria (Ed.), Springer-Verlag, 2004
ISBN: 1852337850

Copying from the review:

"One of the book's highlights is chapter 6, which presents a long detailed
discussion
of a user interface design by Aaron Marcus and Associates for Samsung
mobile telephones
and PDAs"

"It's not a how-to book, but gives enough information for managers
(sometimes even designers)
to understand the technology and the demands of mobile technology
applications."

Greetings,
Alexandros Philopoulos
Ulm, Germany

If you are looking into design of mobile applications rather than
hardware, Andy Dornan's book is an excellent reference. It's on the
techy side, but covers a lot of what a designer may need to know about
wireless technology:
Andy Dornan (2002) "The Essential Guide to Wireless Communications
Applications" (2nd ed.)

Also, check out past MobileHCI conferences. They won't point to books,
but will give you names and themes in the field: www.mobilehci.org

The books I've read are:

Handheld Usability, by Scott Weiss - this is 1/2 "what is usability",
so that part may not be useful. The remainder is a mix of techniques
and recommendations for device manufacturers, software designers, and
web designers.

Mobile Usability: How Nokia Changed the Face of the Mobile Phone by
lindholm - as a designer at a carrier, this didn't help me much.

Style guides from: Sun ($39, Amazon), Sprint (free), Nokia (free),
Palm (free), Openwave (free.

Several articles, theses, and dissertations.

I think there are more.
