From coffee shops, to shopping malls, to schools, to wherever, the new iPod Touch just brought the mobile web to a much larger audience. We all know iPod’s sell like hot cakes and now the drooling sensation we’ve all felt about the iPhone is no longer going to be held in check by the stiff contract and service fees from AT&T. So given the iPhone hype and iPod success rate, my guess is that this just might be a hit and sell like hotcakes.
Alright so that’s likely a given, geeky discussion yesterday yielded that most of my contacts were rather serious about picking one up, including myself. New gadget induced ranting aside, this means big things for the mobile web as it will soon be in the hands of many more people.
So for those of us suddenly infused with a new sense of importance about the mobile web there are some great resources out there including Cameron Moll’s new book: The Mobile Web, which promises to be the textbook manual for the time being on mobile development. Cameron also has some great articles on his blog about mobile development.
Anyone else feel the same way?
