|RIM in Yahoo! Deal for Blackberry|
Search, e-mail, IM and News

|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.
