Ok,

Post iPhone conversation... Any recent reading material on trends in
mobile / smart phones

I am looking for blogs, whitepapers, conferences, places for where
people are talking about both the IxD and the scenarios of use that are
current.

I liked this NY Times piece on designing for small screens called "On a Small Screen, Just the Salient Stuff":

Here's an excellent resource for mobile user experience and future trends
(Read the 10 manifestos)....
http://www.pmn.co.uk/mex/index.shtml

I found manifesto# 7 quite fascinating: 'Intelligent contact lists are the
future centres of the user
interface<http://www.pmn.co.uk/mex/agenda08.shtml#7>'.
This really forms the foundation for social computing via mobile devices
which we don't really see to a great extent as of today.

Also, here are the shortlisted submissions for mex'08 contest which have
some really interesting scenarios for future mobile experience...

I particularly liked Gaurabh Mathure's "Cloud aware"...

Some of the other student work is also inspiring.

I try to keep a good set over at www.squidoo.com/mobiledesign, which
has most of the resources in this thread so far. Plus our stuff.

A very interesting blog about Mobile Interaction Design:

There is the mex conference on the consumer side. They do a very good
blog about mobile experience design.

SmallSurfaces by Gabriel White is one of the best blogs out there.

Engadget Mobile and Gizmodo are great sources I rely on for
intelligence of the mostly consumer market.

I do have to say though that FEW people cover the enterprise or the
industrial mobile markets or trends at all. I have not seen anything
on design, but lots on IT and Technology out there.

I also think it is important to include the Touch (NFC) initiative
and the NUI (gestures) initiatives as well.

Lastly, when it comes to covering trends in mobile, Go to Japan &
Korea. And do both. Japan alone won't give you a complete picture.
These 2 countries are SOOOOO far ahead when it comes to enculturing
mobile technologies at deep levels that it just can't be ignored.

I know you were looking for a good excuse for a 14hr. flight, right?
