I see Web 2.0 as the Intelligent web or ‘Harnessing Collective Intelligence.' Mobile Web 2.0 extends the principle of 'Harnessing Collective Intelligence' to restricted devices. The seemingly simple idea of extending Web 2.0 to mobile Web 2.0 has many facets, for instance: a) What is a restricted device? b) What are the implications of extending the web to restricted devices? c) As devices become creators and not mere consumers of information – what categories of intelligence can be captured/harnessed from restricted devices? d) What is the impact for services as devices start using the web as a massive information repository and the PC as a local cache where services can be configured?   Restricted devices: A broad definition of a ‘restricted device’ is not easy.

If you read my books or my blogs, you will know that I am 'pro' web/Open Standards. Thus, this post should not come as a surprise. It's a bit of a gedankenexperiment. What I am proposing is a mobile phone optimized to accessing information on the Web (which is predominantly browsing but not necessarily so i.e. could include Widgets and RSS). Firstly ..
