Our friend Tim Oren sends us off to read Jeff Nolan's post asking whether the mobile web is dead? Jeff writes: 'Stop the insanity! The mass market does not use the mobile web as a regular mode of interacting with the bigger web!' Read the comments to his post as well.
Tim also points us to Russell Beattie's lament from earlier this week about his startup, Mowser, shutting down. Russell writes: 'The argument up to now has been simply that there are roughly 3 billion phones out there, and that when these phones get on the Internet, their vast numbers will outweigh PCs and tilt the market towards mobile as the primary web device. The problem is that these billions of users *haven't* gotten on the Internet, and they won't until the experience is better and access to the web is barrier-free - and that means better devices and "full browsers".'
What's a mobile banker to think of all this?
