The best design resource I have found is Smashing Magazine. Full of tutorials, free resources, just about anything you need for web design.

Where do I go to find out how best to design web sites and web apps so that they function well on smartphone and multi-media phone browsers?

If you are focused on users, I suggest you start with Use It: http://www.useit.com/

Thanks for the list! I have been using Sitepoint.com for the last 10 years. Their newsletter, articles, books, and now online courses on subjects such as CSS and Javascript have been very helpful. Also the forums are very active and useful.

Thanks for the list had about 6 of them already bookmarked. Here are two that I tend to utilize quite often as well - w3schools.com when I forget a code or attribute reference, and just so I know I'm on the right track with my designs I check in at Vince Flanders wonderful site, webpagesthatsuck.com. The examples of bad design in action found there have kept me focused on creating clean usable pages for several years now.
