I yesterday submitted a position paper to the W3c Workshop on the Mobile Web in Developing Countries even though the discussion is valid for the whole mobile web discussion. The main conclusion is that we should of policy and technology constraints discuss whether a mobile web really exist:
When these issues â€“ both on the handset, but most of all on the network side – are resolved then we might start to think of â€œone webâ€, until then I think it is better to think of it as â€˜different webs yet interactingâ€™. Regardless, cellphones will play an essential part in the future, and especially the exploding use of cellphones in the developing world will force this to happen.
As for applications and generally speaking we will see a lot of social media cellphone applications emerge and cellphones will be used as interaction devices with the web, as well as, when the platform is ready, part of the World Wide Web.
