Don’t shrink designs to small screens

A report about designing for small screens in PDF ...

“Shrinking” design paradigms to mobile devices often isn’t the best strategy.

“Designing user interfaces for small screens is a difficult problem, much more difficult than it may seem at first glance. We can not simply take established interface conventions and “shrink” them to baby face size, because just like children have a unique way of life, baby faces are different to desktop computers in ways that we are only beginning to comprehend. But this difference also presents great opportunities for interface designers to find new and valid interface paradigms, paradigms that will be relevant not just for baby faces, but for mass-market computing devices in general."    (Continued via Small Surfaces)    [Usability Resources]
