Browser is the new OS even for Mobile phones

At Mobisy we always believed that the future of Mobile computing is in the cloud. And Browsers are the doorways to access the rich information available over Internet. But on the other hand, mobile device native applications provide much richer functionality that browsers cannot match. Our platform mobitop was born, exactly to solve that problem. We mesh rich functionality a handset provides with the easy of development and cloud access a browser provides. In that sense , we made browser act like a real OS on the Mobile device !!
But of course during the course of last 3 years I heard some comments contrary to our believes , let me try and bust those myths here.
1. Mobile processors are too slow to handle heavy processing needs of a full fledged browser based app :-
Just  3 years ago when we started, N80 with it’s 220Mhz processor was one of the fastest Mobile computing device. Today we have Google nexus with 1Ghz processor almost as much as a laptop .. match that ..:-)
With these processors it’s not only feasible but it’s easily possible to write rich applications for mobile handsets in web technologies.
2. The pipes are too small
Well that’s a funny one. Today in Mobisy, we have couple of interesting applications on Mobitop using only SMS as a pipe to share data. We are also working on another app which uses CBS as a pipe. Now compare that with existing GPRS and upcoming 3G pipes..
3. Battery life
Battery life is real concern, web apps with their interpreted processing and network oriented approach, do such Battery quicker than native app. Going forward, batteries themselves are getting better as well as we are inventing new ways to write smarter applications.
4. Reliability of connections
With Ajax techniques we do write completely asynchronous applications which do not really rely on reliability of connection. Especially if you know your users are going to use flaky connection. We have also integrated offline working in all our applications to get around this issue more effectively.
5. What else ?
Do you have any question yourself?Please get in touch. I love to sell Mobitop ..:-)
