Ajit Jaokar writes in the context of SoonR:
This week, SoonR launched the first true Mobile Ajax application. Based on the Opera platform, SoonRs service truly leverages the power of Mobile Ajax.
I believe Mobile Ajax applications are a new and emerging class of applications, and this service is a trendsetter of a new wave of Mobile Web applications.
Here are some of the aspects of the service which showcase the power of this new class of applications:
a) The application is completely browser based no software to install on the client
b) It uses the power of Ajax to manage data, reducing latency , loading time and increases response time
c) It provides a better user interface using a web application that is closer to a native/PC based application than a typical web application
d) Distribution is via the web (but the application can also be distributed by the carriers)
The application itself provides a simple but useful service. In a nutshell, the SoonR service lets mobile users access their computers from any Internet-connected mobile handset.
