There is a course going on at KTH, sweden on Sensor Networks given by  
Adam Dunkels, Luca Mottola and Olaf Landsiedel, with some good info on  
the OSs for WSNs.
In my opinion, if you plan to do hardware implementations with the  
motes use TinyOS since the documentation for TinyOS is much nicer.  
Contiki as a fantastic simulator that TinyOS doesnt have.
