Mobile First, PC Second

Over on Radar, Tim O’Reilly says the mobile tipping point is upon us:

I think about the web as experienced on a PC, and then about mobile as an add on. The tipping point has come; that notion has to flip: if we’re trying to get ahead of the curve, we need to think first about the phone, and then think about the PC browser experience as the add-on.

    Aside from dedicated mobile applications and traditional websites, there’s also more and more RIA applications. The 3 of them can interface with the same web-services if you built the right architecture from scratch.
