[This article is ostensibly about Silverlight on the iPhone, which of course is not true. They just demo-ed an IIS server knowing that it needs to deliver H.264 video if the client is an iPhone. But this comment was interesting...]
> With RIM’s acquisition of Torch Mobile, virtually all “native” smartphone browsers will be WebKit based:
> iPhone = WebKit
> Android = WebKit
> WebOS = WebKit
> Symbian = WebKit
> Blackberry = WebKit (soon)
> WinMo = WebKit (with a 3rd-party browser)
> WebKit brings great HTML5 support to mobile devices. Fennec & Opera Mobile are also expected to provide great HTML5 support.
> Streaming with HTML video seems like the best & easiest way to get video to smartphones, since it eliminates the need for CPU intensive & battery draining addons like Flash & Silverlight. http://bit.ly/8YHaeq
