I am looking for some beginner resources for cellphone programming. I have no clue if there is a unified language or if there are several available, any info or links are very welcome. Thanks

I would start using J2ME because there is a broad support for this
in many diffrent handsets.

You can find some ressources here

http://developer.sonyericsson.com/site/global/home/p_home.jsp
http://forum.nokia.com/

At these sites you will be able to find software and sdk's so you can get going

Bedst regards

This article is where I started, good way to get the basics. Read the sticky at the top of the Consoles, PDAs, and Cell Phones forum, there is some very good information sources there.

For now J2ME is the way to go.

I would also recommend looking at J2ME (Java) since it is more widely supported on cell phones. (Symbian is the other main one, this is C++.)

There is a very good free online book about developing games in J2ME.

Also http://www.j2meforums.com/forum/ is a good resource and contains a Wiki with more useful information. (Look near the top of the page at the above link to find a link to the Wiki.)

pkelly83, I apriciate your help, but unfortunatly your ancient resource confused me greatly... How long ago did you start anyway? ;)

It was exactly the kind of tut I was looking for (with all the preliminairy steps as well), unfortunatly it's just a tad out of date.
