Orbitz releases mobile apps

Looks like Orbitz is getting into the mobile travel space with a new iPhone and Android mobile app. I think its interesting that their sister company is using a mobile website instead for a different strategy. Others have also headged their bets by developing both mobile sites and apps at the same time - GetThere and Rearden Commerce. HTML 5.0 looks very promising and I can't wait to see how this plays out in the coming years.

Even the device makers are getting into the fray as Apple's whole strategy revolves around apps while RIM is pitching that “You don’t need an app for the Web,” with their new Playbook.
