Research In Motion will put such Yahoo Inc. Web offerings as search, e-mail, instant messaging, and news on its BlackBerry devices, and will start rolling out the service in 60 countries in about two weeks, the two companies said on Wednesday.

In my view this is more significant than it first sounds. The mobile/PDA space is the big wild card of the future and these kind of affilliations might shape that market fundamentally.

The true impact of these sort of deals between portal/search engine/content providers and mobile/PDA devices probably won't even be measurable for several years but could turn out to be huge.

A good historic example to remember is AOL choosing to use Google to provide its search results. Seemed rather benign at the time didn't it...

I need to get a new one, will wait for new model.
and I know as a web dev that my designing knowledge for mobile is just about ZERO or even <0 .
This really needs to change

Am I alone? Any book or tutorial on the topic?

Yes, probably a little over a hundred noteworthy books. Try amazon, barnes and nobles, or any bookstore for that matter--unfortunately there are only a select few discussing programming for PDAs in various languages (C++, java etc.,), but a good number that discuss creating web pages compatible for such use.
