    Dear Vinnie, a very interesting piece. A few questions for you

    a) Despite all the rich applications we are talking about, aren’t these still accessing a server hosted application finally to perform a meaningful task?

    b) How is this mobile app thing we talk here different than the usual desktop client where a browser needs server access for everything, whereas a desktop client for that application can perform some function without talking to the server. How mobile apps are different? Would it be fair to say that mobile apps are similar to what desktop apps (that used to connect to servers eventually, say MS Office desktop client) are in terms of what they do (of course not talking architecture, ease of use, availability, etc.)

    Retailers are instantly actualizing the priority of building a robust and intimate mobile shopping experience for their customers. When Carrying out a strategic mobile strategy, the first question retailers consider is this: mobile-optimized website, rich downloadable app or both?

    Thanks for the interesting insight Vinnie
