As REST best suits to mobile world and as the future ahead is mobile why not we just move to REST instead of SOAP? What is that something that would stop us or what REST can not give that SOAP can?

Where did you see that REST best suits to mobile world? SOAP can give you headache, if you want to avoid it go RESTful always!

You should use what fits your requirements. SOAP is generally more involved to deploy, but has features REST doesn't, like those that come with WS-Security.
