cell-phone browser, we hardly knew ye

Former Yahoo! Mobile evangelist turned startup entrepreneur Russell Beattie announced this week that he’s calling it quits for his company Mowser, because the market for mobile browsing is taking a fast turn for the worse. “The mobile traffic just isn’t there,” Beattie says, “It’s not there now, and it won’t be.”

Beattie’s announcement comes just two months after mobile blogger and consultant Michael Mace wrote a much discussed post titled Mobile Applications, RIP. “The business of making native apps for mobile devices is dying, crushed by a fragmented market and restrictive business practices,” Mace wrote.
