Hi all,

Since I do not have the definition completely and I am not good at English, I would like to know your understanding.
What differs between "mobile web" and "mobile web applications"? Is one of the two a subset of other? Or does one of the two have a part which is not contained on the other?

Moreover, what differs between "apps" and "web apps"? What is the reason that we expect that "web apps" attracts everyone (not only developer but also consumer)?

Regards,

Satoru Takagi

Mobile devices and tablets are good examples of these. Televisions and set-top boxes are others though definitely not mobile.

Compelling compared to what? Obviously, we are talking about the rise of native apps and app stores, which have become the de facto way to build and deliver applications and services on these types of devices. This is the context we are working in. What I am saying is that we should not get into an academic debate about the meaning of mobile or mobility. Rather, we need to ground the work of this group in the context of this clear and present danger to the Web.
