There has been a lot of news in the mobile Web space.
At Adobe Engage, Kevin Lynch showed screen shots of AIR running on a phone and gave a sneaky demo of it running on a tablet running Windows on a Nokia device (Nokia will probably end up with devices running everything :).
Nokia today announced plans to make Microsoft Silverlight available for S60 on Symbian OS.
We released Google Gears for Mobile. Although the first release is for WinMo only, we actually have something that you can use right now and third parties implemented solutions in very short order indeed. I can’t wait to see this spread to other devices.
Sync Services for ADO.NET: Synchronization for ADO.NET enabled data sources
Sync Services for File Systems: Synchronization for files and folders
Sync Services for SSE: Synchronization for Simple Sharing Extensions (SSE) such as RSS and ATOM feeds
This looks interesting from a client-side perspective, and I want to take some time to look at the sync API itself and see what good stuff we could potentially use in Gears. Microsoft has had to do various sync protocols over the years, so I am sure there is a lot to learn, but this isn’t a Gears rival in its current form.
