We put together this wiki as a resource for this book. This site has an extensive number of mobile resources, including research-based frameworks, pattern libraries, drawing tools and templates, and plenty more enlightening mobile stuff. Please check it out!
Yes, I know you are already here. But I couldn't figure out a better way to include every word from the book than to include it, and then make this note.
Originally, this was an unordered list of books that inspired us while we were writing Designing Mobile Interfaces. Now, I've expanded it to include things we missed or forgot to include, things that came out since our book, and have reorganized it by sections.
If you’re new to the field of mobile UI design, or you want to expand on your interests, these books can offer you an excellent source of background knowledge.

A huge amount of our reference is actually looking at devices, and that includes GPS, TV, and whatever else we could find. For the book, we took around 1,300 screenshots (or, for older or weirder devices, photos). They are all in this group on Flickr here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/shoobe01/sets/72157627094523863/with/5972038915/

Discuss & Add
Please do not change content above this line, as it's a perfect match with the printed book. Everything else you want to add goes down here.
Make a new section
Just like this. If, for example, you want to argue about the differences between, say, Tidwell's Vertical Stack, and our general concept of the List, then add a section to discuss. If we're successful, we'll get to make a new edition and will take all these discussions into account.
