  • 7. Today’s Mobile Landscape: Opportunity On The MoveNot surprisingly, as more consumers obtain smartphones and mobile devices, more areseeking to use them to their full potential.• Forrester Research finds that, “As smartphones become smarter, they are increasingly delivering the whole Internet, not just a part of it,v ” and that consumers across age and demographic groups expect to use their smartphones to send messages, browse the Web and perform other enhanced services.• Mobile data traffic on AT&T’s networks grew 50 times in the 3 years ending 4Q2009, with huge spikes following the introduction of Apple’s® iPhone® in 2007 and the iPhone® 3G in 2008.vi• “According to a recent Deloitte survey, 55 percent of users said that they will use their mobile device to find store locations and 45 percent of users will use their devices to research prices.” —Mobile Marketer, Mobile Outlook 2010And these statistics are just the beginning. If you look at the traditional “S” curve of technologyadoption (See Figure 2), 25 percent smartphone penetration puts us right at the inflectionpoint. The next few years should bring rapid progress toward “saturation” level. In short, asbest described by Andy Favell of mobiThinking, “the mobile web is reaching critical mass.After years of anticipation, all the pieces are finally falling into place. The devices, networks,users and brands are all on the same page—and it’s about 128 x 160 pixels (and growing).vii ” Ifyou aren’t on that page, you are missing a prime opportunity to build your brand and businesswith this growing segment of users.FIGURE 2: THE “S” Curve of Technology Adoption 100 75 Market Share % 50 25 0Innovators Early Early Late Laggards2.5% Adopters Majority Majority 16% 13.5% 34% 34% Consumers adopting new technology Market shareThe diffusion of innovations according to Rogers (1962).

Research In Motion’s (RIM) Blackberry® browser includes some basic HTML5 support in its recent versions and promises substantially more in its upcoming OS 6 release. It’s still too soon to see if HTML5 will be the olive branch in the platform wars, but it is a promising technology your site designers and developers should be exploring. Another simple solution to narrowing the field of devices is to meet your customers where they are now. By choosing to build to the devices your customers most frequently use, you can maximize your impact while minimizing your development efforts. We look at who is doing this successfully later in this paper.The explosive growth of mobile device penetration and useis yielding some growing pains.

EMPHASIZING BRAINS,SACRIFICING BEAUTYDespite their increasing numbers andsophistication, mobile devices, especiallysmartphones, have smaller screens andsometimes slower networks. The largegraphics that look great on your desktopsite may overwhelm smaller mobile devicescreens, cause delays while downloading,and crowd out functionality. Mobile devicesbring new requirements for site design andperformance, and that requires rethinkingthe functionality and design of your site.Unfortunately, too many firms ororganizations that are making the jumpto mobile overcompensate for the realestate and performance limitations bystripping their sites down to bare basics.Often, sites render as little more thana series of text links. This may makethe site accessible, but does it make it successful? Good branding and design build lasting impressions and equate to stronger perceptions of trust and reliability. Minimal design is useful for getting a functional interface out the door, but we believe that minimal additional effort can produce more engaging, attractive design for smartphone interfaces, while still achieving functional efficiency. When it comes to design for mobile devices, you don’t have to choose between brains and beauty—you can demand and rightfully expect both. Uncertainty about how to effectively incorporate mobile devices into overall Web strategy is paralyzing many firms and organizations. They are either not yet building for mobile devices at all, or they are doing so in such a stripped down, basic way that their mobile sites are not brand affirming. Ironically, the former category includes many vendors of Web content management systems that purport to make designing for mobile devices easier. But despite these continuing hurdles, businesses and services across a broad spectrum are figuring out how to leap forward and carve out a profitable place on the mobile web. For all of these, the starting point is a well-crafted strategy. White Paper | September 2010 | 7

Aligning Strategy and Business Goals Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group’s experience is a case study ix in how to successfully approach the mobile web, and it started with strategically aligning this new marketing venture with brand and business goals. Others are taking a different approach. The phenomenal success of Apple’s® App Store (more than 2 billion sold) has many people rushing to create and release “an app for that,” whatever that may be. Others are creating Web content that is optimized for mobile device browsers.
