  24. 24. 2009 UGent DIY• Mobile web = absolute developer fun!• Issues in 2009: • Mobile Web != Desktop Web (maybe this will change?) • Still a bit Wild West: new practices, quirks and workarounds • Libraries reinvent iPhone / Android look & feel but what about older Nokia, Sony Ericsson, BlackBerry?• What about: telephone, GPS, video, camera, tilt/touch sensors, 3D, app integration (agenda, etc)? Will HTML5 specs keep up with new hardware capabilities?
