The latest issue of Computers in Libraries (vol. 26, no. 4, April 2006) has several super articles on serving mobile customers. This issue isn’t up on their website yet, but keep checking—some of the articles are usually available in full-text.

Here are the ones I especially recommend:
Colevins, Helen, Diana Bond, and Kathy Clark, Nurse Refresher Students Get a Hand from Handhelds, pp. 6-8, 46-48.
Cuddy, Colleen, How to Serve Content to PDA Users On-the-Go, pp. 10-15.
Eash, Esther Kreider, Podcasting 101 or K-12 Librarians, pp. 16-20.
Balas, Janet, What’s in Their Pockets? Mobile Electronics, pp. 32-34.
Stephens, Michael, IM=FASTER Virtual Reference on the Cheap! pp. 36-37. (You should really try this one!)

There’s also a good article on making your web pages more understandable to the visually impaired: Peters, Tom and Lori Bell, Audio Description Adds Value to Digital Images, pp. 26-28.
