Mobile Gold

Tim Bray – Mobile Gold:

"We are, right now in early 2009, sliding into the golden age of mobile technology and business.

[…] What’s crucial is that there will be at least four players—all with healthy finances and real engineering depth—vying to build devices to improve your life. Which is wonderful! This kind of competition on a wide-open playing field is what makes evolution and growth happen.

[…] The iPhone has proved that a mobile device can really truly be a first-class citizen of the Net. Which had been true in theory for a decade; but only in theory. Speaking personally, as a person who’d never thought I needed the Internet in my pocket, I find myself using my G1 to approve comments and check the weather and fetch maps and so on all the time."
