This is all the Titanium Mobile development news I’ve gathered from the Twittersphere and Interwebs for the past week. Another buzy week leading up to CodeStrong!

Appcelerator announced a partnership with Barnes and Nobel to promote Nook Color development. You can get started now! The story also got pciked up by Techcrunch.

Appcelerator also announced beta 1 for the Titanium SDK for Mobile Web. It allows development of mobile website using the same JS as your mobile and desktop development. It still has a way to go, but looks promising.

Tips
