Palm OSŪ User Interface Guidelines
This online book describes how to design applications for Palm Powered(TM) handhelds so that they conform to Palm, Inc's user interface guidelines. Read and use it if you are an interaction designer, application designer, or a developer and you are considering creating applications that run on Palm OSŪ.

It is well know that the Palm OSŪ UI Guidelines are established through extensive fieldwork, and therefor some of these insights may provide you solutions and concepts that resolve typical problems in designing web sites and webbased applications that run on PDA's in general.

These guidelines are quite interesting, but I like the 'Zen of Palm' more. It describes the complete design philosophy *behind* those guidelines...
