Mobile Design Video

A good video on mobile design at Marakana:

Hampton's 6 Rules of Mobile Design
http://marakana.com/s/post/1332/hampton_catlin_sass_6_rules_mobile_design_html5_video
  1. On mobile, simplicity is a requirement.
  2. Simplicity is a balance between comprehension and brevity.
  3. Understand, and then optimize your core value proposition.
  4. "Where?" is more important than "who?"
  5. Assume terrible dexterity (child, drunk, old person trinity of testers).
  6. The footer is a dead zone.
Where refers to home, transit, bars, toilet.

He also makes reference to Dieter Rams, a noted industrial designer:
