iPhone and the Death of the Mobile Web

Nate Mook:

Pocket IE, a staple of Microsoft’s Windows Mobile platform is largely useless for loading anything but pages specially designed for mobile browsers. Opera Mini arguably does a better job, but requires Java and does not work on many popular phones such as the Samsung Blackjack. The Palm OS browser is a relic at this point.

This is what makes the iPhone’s debut especially important, because an answer has finally been found.
