After reading recent posts about how AJAX is the medicine when it comes to mobility app development, I have to say: STOP! For the sake of new developers entering this space let’s not confuse things. No, AJAX will NOT save mobility from fragmentation, porting issues, and so on.
There are fundamental differences between browser-based (or thin clients) and smart/rich clients — and this comes to no surprise to experienced developers. There also are reasons and requirements why you would create a browser-based vs. a smart client application. In short, the argument that one approach to mobile applications will replace the other is completely flawed.
