Abstract [en]

The existing advanced web browsers in today’s mobile phones open up the door for mobile web applications. By using standard webtechnologies, a web page can be crafted to mimic the behavior of a normal application. The purpose of this master’s thesis has been to look at web application development for mobile phones in general and to implement a web-based Mobile TV client to determine whether it would be a viable alternative to existing clients based on other technologies. The advantages are the same as for any other web application: 1) the user avoids the hassle of installing an application and will always run the latest version, 2) developers benefit from the browser’s ability to render generic content, and 3) it is believed that the differences between browser implementations are less than in other environments in which an application would run, for example Java or operating system specificenvironments.

Abstract [sv]

De avancerade webbläsare som redan idag finns tillgängliga på nyare mobiltelefoner har gjort det möjligt att skapa mobila webbapplikationer. Genom användandet av befintlig webbteknik kan en webbsida utformas på ett sådant sätt att den uppträder som en vanlig applikation. Syftet med det här examensarbetet har varit att titta på webbutveckling för mobiltelefoner i allmänhet samt att implementera en webbaserad MobilTV-klient för att avgöra hurivida en sådan lösning skulle kunna utgöra ett alternativ till redan existerande klienter baserade på andra teknologier. Fördelarna antas vara desamma som för andra webbapplikationer: 1) användaren slipper installera ett program och kommer alltid att köra den senaste versionen, 2) utvecklingen gynnas av webbläsarens förmåga att rendera godtyckligt innehåll och 3) skillnaderna mellan olika webbläsarimplementationer anses vara mindre i jämförelse med andra miljöer i vilka en applikation körs, till exempel Java- eller operativsystemspecifika.
