designing interfaces for mobile

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)

Fitt's law for mobile devices

I've been working on articulating some of the theory behind mobile UI
design, by examining current algorithms and heuristics from the entire
field. I'd like some feedback (blog post at [1]). I've got further
analysis with specific design recommendations at [2], but that is a
topic for a different message.

Mouse driven interfaces (software) – the "large" controls are the
edges of the screen, as they are really infinitely large in one
direction. Corners are larger still. Thus frequently used items should
go around the edges.

Morae - video cameras

How many video camera streams can you run into morae at one time?

I'd like to run two at the same time, as I'd like to tape a mobile phone with one camera and then tape users with another camera. I

Any ideas? Unfortunately I do not have a copy of Morae at this time and Camtasia crashes when I try to record using two cameras at the same time.

Mobile phones, use buttons or hyperlinks


I am wondering if anybody know if there is any research regarding the use of hyperlinks over buttons in order to perform an action.

I've seen the use of both buttons and hyperlinks for WAP 2.0, but am seeing more hyperlinks as opposed to buttons. I am creating an xhtml page.

mobile phone prototyping and usability

Hi all,

One of the students here at Interaction-Ivrea is looking for
information on prototyping techniques and usability for mobile phones.
He's already got the Nokia book "Mobile Usability: How Nokia Changed
the Face of the Mobile Phone." Most specifically, he's interested in
prototyping methods and techniques for mobile phones.

Anybody have some pointers? I ask here because I figure it might be an
interesting thing for others on this list. Excuse me if you've seen me
post this on another list.

I am a student speciallizing in the field of User Interface Design. I am doing a user study on mobile interface. Can someone guide me on some matter on the above topic or works that have already been done in the above area, which will help me in doing the above user study.

I haven't been able to find much information on how these studies have been done, case studies etc. I would like to know about any papers that have been publised in this field.
