    Mobile web development is very current nowadays and the books out there now is very slim in explaining all the technologies that are neccessary. This book is a godsend for web developers who really need a reference book on understanding what issues and concerns must be taken on trying to get your mobile web page viewable on the thousands of different web platforms there are.

    Web browsers in mobile devices aim to comply with web and mobile industry standards. The author teaches you the standards, best practices and development techniques for building interactive mobile web pages for browsers in smartphones and other mobile devices.

    The standards-based mobile web browser is the most promising cross-platform mobile technology. The author based this book on his courses he teaches based upon his many years of experiennce in deploying mobile web applications around the world.

    The examples are easy to follow and help get you up and running in a short time.

    Its a great book and should be in your computer book library.

    It is a very well written book. The book provides a very good overview and a overall birds eye view of most of the mobile platforms. This book is not in depth, but thats exactly what the title says ‘Beginning’. If you want in depth you can view some of their other series. The book is like a movie trailer, if you want to see the whole movie, there are other book by the same publisher, and same series. Its great for people who don’t want to get into the details, but would like to select their favorite mobile platform, by seeing what every platform has to offer. The language and style is excellent, and the information flows smoothly. The book does contain codes and examples to try. The book help a starter to navigate the complex waters of mobile platform development with great ease. Highly recommended for mobile platform starters.
