Project 4: Presentationon Mobile/Tablet DesignDavid Morillo 02/01/2013Hello my name is David Morillo and this is project 4: Presentation on Mobile/Tablet Design.
From the Informal To the Extraordinary 2 1 3 0 Taking the “Extraordinary” MobileBased on the goals that we discussed in out initial meeting regarding updating your current website, I believe that we should take some time to consider implementing a mobile marketing strategy. Based on a 2012 Googlereport 75% of customers prefers a mobile friendly site. This is why I believe that Collins Catering should utilize a combination of a mobile and desktop experience, which would result in more engaged clients acrossdevices.
Some 88% of U.S. adults own a cell phone of some kind as of April 2012, and more than half of these cell owners (55%) use their phone to go online. Moreover, 31% of these current cell internet users say that they mostly go online using their cell phone, and not using some other device such as a desktop or laptop computer. (Aaron, 2012)In an article written for netmagzine.com by Luke Wroblewski titled, “Mobile ﬁrst”, we are offered insights into why we should consider utilize mobile in our marketing strategy. Luke wrote, “…the three key reasons why:mobile is seeing explosive growth; mobile forces you to focus; and mobile extends your capabilities.” Based on a report I came across we can see that the we want to pay attention to this growing market as “some 88% ofU.S. adults own a cell phone of some kind as of April 2012, and more than half of these cell owners (55%) use their phone to go online. Moreover, 31% of these current cell Internet users say that they mostly go onlineusing their cell phone, and not using some other device such as a desktop or laptop computer.”

Current Options Modify code and design to work on mobile devices Optimized layout for handhelds devices Choices WML HTML 5 CSS3 XHTML (Dawson, 2010)There are various technologies we can use to make your website accessible on all devices. One of the options is to alter the coding on your existing site to accommodate the various devices a user will use to access thesite.

This will afford the users to have an optimized experience on both the desktop and mobile devices. I believe this to be the better option. What we would do is route usersto either the mobile or desktop site based on what device they are using. We would allow the user to choose what experience they would like to have by offering the option to access either site.Our company will utilize the best choice for the development of the mobile site. There are some options like: WML, XHTML mobile proﬁle, HTML 5
