GigaOM: Mobile Web a Sticky Propsition

GigaOM was less than impressed with this week’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, dismissing the whole thing as “another week full of promises coming out of the wireless industry that we will find eventually use our mobile phones to access the web much like we use our PCs.”

They’re right, of course—many players in the mobile industry share these sentiments, with one telling us off the record that he’s been hearing this stuff every year since 2000.

At any rate, GigaOM hits all the right reasons, such as the fact that there are too many handsets, too many mobile operating systems, too many interface issues, and just an overall sense of too many moving targets for developing software on mobile.
