Apple has brought Mobile Safari to the iPod.

Last week, Apple announced the new iPod Touch (essentially, an iPhone without the phone bits). What’s particularly interesting about the iPod Touch is that it includes WiFi connectivity and Mobile Safari.

There are two aspects to this release that make it particularly interesting:

  1. Mobile Safari is now poised to explode in terms of market share, possibly driving a lot of innovation in the handheld browser market, and
  2. developers now have a far less expensive means of obtaining and testing on the new browser.

What do you think of this announcement? What repercussions do you think we’ll see?
