” I think anyone currently developing sites using XHTML-MP markup, no
are simply wasting their time, and I’m tired of wasting my time.”
–Russell Beattie, announcing the end of his start-up, Mowser, and his general disgust with where mobile’s gone–or not gone–in the US.
Susan sez: This is depressing, but it’s true..mobile development is leaping past what is happening in the US with our standard formats.However, when Russell says “Users recognize this, and have made it very clear they won’t be using
the “Mobile Web” as a substitute for better browsers, rather they’ll
just stay away completely,” I completely disagree–use cases and platforms are two different things and the phone is an established–if new–delivery system for web based data.
