Mobile: The World of Browser-Based Sites and Mobile Apps

via / more from Richard MacManus on ReadWriteWeb
Mobile search company Taptu has released a detailed report showing that the future of the Mobile Web is likely to be dominated by cross-platform browser-based mobile web sites - rather than apps built specifically for iPhone, Android, or any other platform. Taptu calls the former "the Mobile Touch Web", which it defines as "Web sites created for mobile touchscreen devices, with finger-friendly layouts and lightweight pages that are fast to load over cellular networks."
Taptu estimates that there are 326,000 Mobile Touch Web sites, 148,000 iPhone apps, and 24,000 apps in the Android market and that the browser-based mobile web market will grow much faster than the apps market.
