Does anyone have any recommendations for smartphone design books/resources for the full UCD process i.e. concept, user flow, IA, production, testing, etc?
This one is very good:
Here are a few:
The Mobile Design Process
jQuery Touch-Optimized Web Framework for Smartphones & Tablets
The Dos and Do Nots of Mobile Applications
iPad Apps Dos and Don'ts
Considerations for Mobile Design
Best sites ti get mobile resources
14 Differences Between Mobile Search & Desktop Search Results
Best Practices for Designing Mobile Touch Screen Applications
Stencils and UI Elements
Wireframe Tools and Kits
There are tons of stuff out there to assist you.
Hope this helped. :)

The UCD process remains the basically the same – but you do interviews, ethnographic research etc. on mobile use of devices etc.

Information on designing for touchscreens are rare and there are a lot of untested assumptions out there ("gestures are always intuively understood" and the like)

Thanks a lot for the resource list, really helpful :)
I found a site that has tons of ebooks on any subject, including mobile UX design. Check it out at www.library.nu.The books aren't the most up to date, but they tend to be good enough. Not sure about the legality either, but it's really nice to just pop these onto my iPad and go.
