Two stories making the rounds show there’s more than one way to deliver core platform technologies without being in the operating systems business. Google has apparently incorporated huge chunks of its Chrome OS environment into its latest iPad search app. And of course, the Facebook phone rumors are re-gaining momentum. (Though isn’t the “news” that it’s HTC as partner, and deployment is still a year away more compelling than its purported codename?) Facebook still says HTML5 is its path to mobile ubiquity, while at the same time maintaining a better phone would have social technologies deeply integrated. Windows Mobile looks pretty deeply integrated to me, especially Nokia’s latest flavor. What more does Facebook want? Could it be its Credits virtual currency? Sure, but that should work fine with HTML5 and secure identity authorization.
