The Big Mobile and Desktop Platform Merge Is Underway

leave a comment »

According to GiGaOm’s Kevin Tofel, tens of thousands of compelling mobile software titles have been created and some of them are actually good enough to displace their desktop or web counterparts. In some cases, Tofel claims, those mobile apps are just as functional as, and easier to use than their traditional computing equivalents. And, as he observes, there is a growing merger of desktop and mobile computing. Some examples:

  • Motorola’s Atrix
  • Android on Windows, for instance Dell
  • Controlling PC’s from mobile, like Log Me IN
  • Mobile and desktop display sharing (Tofel’s own little gadgetry)
