  • Polish tongue twister <br /> a lie - this is really a mobile 101 presentation <br /> <br />
  • <br />
  • Poland spends the most time in Europe on mobile web <br />
  • 7 years in mobile <br /> designer/developer/entrepreneur <br /> push ui boundaries, <br /> ideas lab for mobile user interfaces <br />
  • a little bit of everything <br /> hidden nuggets/tips <br /> context, trends, ux <br /> what&#x2019;s happening right now.. <br />
  • In 2009, 1.2 billion mobile devices were sold <br /> Nokia still stands strong in terms of global sales with 36% of the market, selling a staggering 440 million <br />
  • Of the 1.2 billion devices sold, 174 million are "smart-phones". <br /> Symbian devices count for nearly 47% of this market <br />
  • Windows is irrelevant for now <br /> Data from earlier in the year, so slightly out of date <br />
  • <br />
  • <br />
  • South African mobile web usage is > than fixed line. <br /> It&apos;s only a matter of time until this becomes true for the western world <br />
  • Physical interactions e.g. Touchscreen, haptics, etc <br /> Tangible era <br />
  • So many things to consider and more so in the future... <br />
  • <br /> Constraints make mobile interesting. A challenge. <br /> If you&apos;re not aware of the constraints, the UX will be poor. <br />
  • <br /> Note: Constraints make mobile interesting. A challenge. <br /> If you&apos;re not aware of the constraints, the UX will be poor. <br />
  • Efficiency, relevancy, <br />
  • understand your users <br />
  • understand your users <br />
  • understand your users <br />
  • Like a large bag of chocolate buttons <br /> single early failure - non returning user <br />
  • Motorola <br /> Exit, Quit, <br />
  • Swiss army knife. Technological advancement and usability <br />
  • pink: iPhone 3GS, green: iPhone 3G, <br /> the rest: single-function devices aka cameras <br /> blue: Nikon D90 <br />
  • <br />
  • Miniaturisation (shrinking things down) vs <br /> Mobilisation (process of selecting the features most important to the user given the mobile context) <br />
  • If you can&apos;t get it right in 2D, don&apos;t even consider going into 3D. Complexity and poor UX for the sake of an 80s buzz word. <br /> &#xA0;&#xA0; &#xA0; <br /> Simpler, more usable interfaces - consider the forgotten (and rapidly growing) markets <br />
  • <br />
  • simple, aesthetically pleasing, <br />
  • whilst we&#x2019;re having tea, don&#x2019;t forget the website! <br />
  • <br />
  • A growing number to choose from <br /> Platforms can be generally split in two: native and third party <br /> Mobile web is the main third party contender <br />
  • Native payment UX requires far less effort than web <br />
  • <br />
  • Faster design/dev iterations <br /> Sometimes faster performance <br />
  • Which do I prefer? Web <br />
  • Native, mobile web, desktop web <br />
  • Spot the difference? <br /> Looks the same. <br /> But more important, the same UX <br />
  • <br />
  • It doesn&#x2019;t look great <br /> Iterate fast <br /> new feature in 3 wks, 15% increase in rev <br /> operator deck placement has been key <br /> hybrid approach <br />
  • all about getting in front of your eyes <br /> good icon design is crucial <br />
  • dig as much as possible <br /> don&#x2019;t make assumptions <br /> Blackberry&#x2019;s biggest market is not enterprise <br /> It&#x2019;s games. Why. BBM and qwerty keyboards <br />
  • while I was searching for local statistics... <br />

  • tell me more.... <br />

  • A fingernail interaction rather than a finger interaction <br />
  • Less than 200 apps for launch <br /> Great potential <br />
