Mobile Web Development

I just helped out today David (the OSNews owner) to put up some cool demos together (featuring osnews and gnomefiles) for his new company, MoBits.

MoBits is a web design/consultant company he founded that does something unique: they only design sites that target phones, PDAs & TVs (developed in either cHTML, XHTML or WAP — primarily cHTML). These mobile sites are meant to run in parallel to existing desktop sites (that the client might already have) and they are served automatically to the visitor depending on his/her browser’s identification agent string. MoBits will be using some of OSNews’ mobile code I developed over the years to do just that.

Judging by the booming of internet-ready mobile phones lately, the company will hopefully do well. So, good luck to David! 🙂
