The mass adoption of HTML5 as a way to create applications may be coming sooner than you think.
At least, that's what Rob Chandhok, president of Qualcomm's Internet services division, thinks. He recently sat down with CNET to talk about where apps are headed. And the direction solidly points to HTML5.
"We see HTML5 and Web-based mobile applications as the way it will end up," Chandhok said.
Companies such as Pandora and LinkedIn already use HTML 5 as the basis for their applications. He said in the next 18 to 24 months, the standard will reach mass adoption among developers.
