So says Gary Warren, the chairman and CEO of AppForge, a mobile-solutions company which specializes in "Web Services via Microsoft Visual Studio".
Opera, and even Nokia and Apple, would beg to differ. These companies have invested significant resources into mobile browsers, and we are only getting started with the real potential of the browser, not only as a tool to surf the Web, but as a platform on which you build applications. Apple's new iPhone even supports Widgets.
"And the mobile Web browser?" Warren asks. The mobile Web browser, Mr. Warren, threatens your business model. The browser makes it easier, faster and cheaper to develop mobile applications, and we are just beginning to scratch the surface of what the browser can do for mobile phones and other devices.
