Google May Steer Devs Web-Ward With Mobile YouTube Refresh

YouTube's decision to make its mobile Web site compatible with HTML5 may one day be viewed as a turning point in what is shaping up as an epic battle for control of the mobile device landscape.

"There is a real battle between Apple and Google, not around devices, but around software and the ecosystem surrounding it," Harry Wang, research director of mobile devices with Parks Associates, told TechNewsWorld. "With this new site, YouTube is sending a message to developers that instead of working on multiple applications for different operating environments, it makes more sense to create browser-accessible applications with a more Web-like experience and richer features."
