WHAT'S GOIN' ON WITH WEBMOTIF

So, what I ventured to product in some online forums a while ago seems to be coming true: smartphones like the Sony Ericsson P800 are predicted to outpace handheld sales in the coming year. In other words: explosive growth, big time sales.

WebMotif, the company I am the Creative Director for, creates smart websites - "smart" as in "dynamic, evolving" websites, not smart as in "what a smart looking design!" (although I hope a few people think of them that way as well). But a couple of months ago, I had discussions with everyone in the company about possibly shifting focus, shifting focus to software programming, and away from web development, if just by a bit. The software programming venue? For smart phones like the Sony Ericsson P800 (read another happy happy joy joy review here).

And we've taken that leap. The company has spent about $1500 so far just ramping up for it (we purchased a second P800 for Wayne, our lead programmer: he's a lucky guy! :) and we also bought software). And we've gotten a new name for a new company, and started developing a website for the software applications, including support, direct purchasing options, support services, you name it.

I really think this is an explosive growth area, and we've made a "strategic" decision to jump on the bandwagon before the bandwagon is officially built. Should be fun.

More on this later on.
