Why be offline when you have a mobile phone?

Posted by: Administrator on March 17, 2007 02:20 PM
Most mobile phones run browsers, and their capabilities are growing quickly. Mobiles can also run web servers - sounds crazy, but Nokia have ported the Apache web server to run on their bigger models. AJAXified web apps of the future may be able to run entirely on our mobile phones, using the net (when they can access it) as a second level file cache. The files you need most would be in your mobile. When you need a big screen, public docking stations will allow you to browse the web apps on your mobile.
