1) Mobile is exploding Luke made this point in late 2009 and its even more true today given consumers insatiable appetite for all things smartphone and tablet. It's clear that mobile is well past the tipping point of consumer adoption, and has forever changed computing.2) Mobile forces you to focus While expanding screen resolutions and increased browser capabilities appeal to designers and developers, often the net result is a website that resembles an episode of Hoaders, with distracting content, unnecessary links, and an overall poor user experience. Just because you can doesn't mean you should. Instead, Luke argues, the user experience should begin with the most important audience, the users. Designing for mobile first requires a minimalist, zen-list approach to design that focuses on the key tasks users hope to achieve.3) Mobile extends your capabilities Today's mobile browser goes well beyond the native capabilities of most desktop browsers. For example, iOS and Android devices provide real-time location information via integrated GPS. iOS Users swipe and touch instead of point and click. Newer Android devices support "Near Field Communication", providing news ways to connect mobile computing to the physical world, like sending payments or even replacing the traditional hotel key. Marketers have a massive opportunity to leverage mobile device capabilities to drive new levels of engagement.
