MobileFOSS 2013

If you haven't heard already, the linux.conf.au committee has announced the first lot of approved miniconfs for lca2013.

The excellent news is that MobileFOSS has been approved.

The mobile space has changed a lot since 2011 when MobileFOSS was last run, we've had losses (with Nokia abandoning QT/Meego) and we've had gains (Android has continued to grow and grow). We've also seen HTML5 and the mobile web develop to the point where the debate about native vs web isn't anywhere as clear cut as it used to be.

So what does this mean?
