PHP and mobile application development


Today that mobile web application are becoming more and more popular, why we don’t see developers or companies more interested into developing technologies and solutions for mobile ? You can notice that everyday there is a new product, solution, or new thing in PHP, but rarely development made for mobile. Is PHP not aquirate for mobile development or developers not yet ready for mobile business ?

PHP have certainly all the necessary for web application development, but like frameworks and CMS solution have made the development of website more easy, there is no similar solution for mobile to make people develop more applications.
Mobile website are not very difficult to develop, the technology is very easy, but internet mobile is really the future and it would be really great if we see more products developed for mobile. Since PHP is leading the web market, why not leading the mobile market too ?
