WebGL proponents want developers for web-based 3D apps

Mobile developers who want to migrate their applications from native platforms to the Web have another tool at their xperia - webgldisposal: WebGL, a cross-platform framework that can be used to display sophisticated 3D graphics and applications in a mobile phone browser. WebGL made its way onto smartphones late last year when Sony Ericsson introduced it as part of a software upgrade for its 2011 Xperia phones. By doing this, Sony Ericsson became the first manufacturer to support WebGL in the Android Web browser. The company is encouraging developers to get started working with the technology. "One of the points for launching this early is that we would like to get it out for application developers so they can start building WebGL applications and tailoring them for mobile," said Anders Isberg, master engineer for research at Sony Ericsson.
