Forward glimpse of the evolution of the internet Online video, cell phone browsers and? webjourneyman msg:3735140 7:37 pm on Aug 30, 2008 (gmt 0) I wonder if online video and cell phone browsers are not two online trends that canīt escape growing big with time and eventually surpass what is now most popular; text based websites accessed via computer. Your guess?

There's room for both ... more to the point, there's not room on a mobile phone for many of things that the Internet takes for granted.
It'll be interesting to see how mobile sites get monetised; there's really not room for many ads, unless they do away with content completely :)

Well, there are times when appropriates ads are exactly the content the surfer is looking for.
I can see a bright and profitable opportunity in mobile advertising on sites with little content that is not directly supplemental to the ads.
