You could start with the official UI guidelines:

For Android: http://developer.android.com/guide/practices/ui_guidelines/index.html

For iPhones and iPods Touch (and I guess for iPads too):  http://developer.apple.com/iphone/library/documentation/userexperience/conceptual/mobilehig/Introduction/Introduction.html

I'm also interested in this topic, and trying to study it on my own. Any good articles, books or other resources you can recommend to start?

Thanks,

Anna

I wrote some high-level blog posts. Not deep stuff, but a series on picking the right feature set, general design guidelines, and thinking through business models. The business model post was just referenced in Mark Schaefer's list of Bloggers Who Hit It Out of the Park (http://bit.ly/csZDS8). Hope you find them helpful. I look forward to seeing what resources others have.
