Let's get development decisions up front, so I can unapologetically bounce between web/native topics in the presentation - Mobile web browsers have a major benefit over web design on the desktop, and that is mobile devices have a higher turnover, in result peoples browsers stay more current and up to date to leverage the most current guidelines - HMTL5 can handle multi-touch (10 finger), in browser 3) Presentation at last weeks MobileProcessing conference had FireFox connecting to a PS3 controller.
Know your developer. Designers and developers both having varying amounts of knowledge into each others verticals - don't assume all devs can parse a PSD

My Über Design Challenge: To maximize smaller screen sizes, the navigation bar can be hidden on trackball/pad interfaces by scrolling left, offering more room for the user to view content. In response to feedback from Philippines (major BB flip phone region) an alternative bar style UI was created to accommodate lack of space. Although the Bubble (shown left) style offered a UI that had a more polished feel, the bar design offered more room for data within smaller screen sizes and resolutions.
