Mobile Takes Center Stage, Yahoo Releases Mobile Developer Platform

Mobile development took a big leap forward today.

At CES today, Yahoo announced the early preview of it’s Mobile Developers Platform. The goal is to enable developers to quickly create and deploy mobile applications across a wide variety of mobile devices. The platform, called Yahoo Mobile Widgets, is expected to usher in a new era of expanded mobile use and include launch partners such as Myspace, MTV and ebay. I’ve posted a copy of the press release below.

I mentioned a few days ago that mobile would be big in 2008. It looks like from this announcement, that it indeed will be.
