Mobile UX : Resources for Forms
I have gotten some requests from a few web designers and developers on what are the best approaches for mobile forms.
But you argue, "Jen, I am designing for smart phones with good webkit/gecko browsers, so I don't need to worry."
Yes, you do, as you can't guarantee on the mobile web what phone, be it smart or feature phone, what browser, and what screen size will come to visit your mobile or web site and may want to fill out a contact form or purchase something.
Here are some resources to get you started:
Linda Bustos at Get Elastic on Mobile Commerce Usability: Forms and Checkout
Chris Mills in ThinkVitamin on Coding for the mobile web
WestCiv's Complete CSS Guide, The Mobile Profile
