  • “The Mobile Age” is divided into four key sections. Mobile 101 provides an overview of mobile technology and terms to familiarize viewers of this presentation with key terms and nomenclature. Mobile’s Impact is a look at the history of mobile and it’s integration with the Internet. Most importantly, this section of the presentation provides a look at trends in consumer behavior created by this mobile world we live in. Facts and Stats provides a wide variety of data points from third-party research and sources on what’s happening in the mobile world.
  • Smart phones are mobile devices that provide functionality beyond calling. These phones are equipped with operating systems that allow you advanced functionality and the capability to download software applications (apps) that provide increased functionality.
    Smart phones generally have larger screens than standard phones and make viewing content easier. Approximately 18% of all mobile phones are smart phones at the end of 2009. That’s about one in five phones. Leading players in this space are the iPhone and Blackberry (various models). Google’s Android platform is quickly rising with a variety of new devices introduced in recent weeks.
    It’s important to note that ‘standard phones’ are not necessarily ‘dumb.’ 89% of all phones (including smart phones) can browse the Internet and get access to data sources via major carriers data services.
  • Most of the web sites that are built, actually more than 9 out of every 10 sites, are not readily viewable on mobile devices. These computers, both desktops and laptops, offer large screen resolution, often faster processes, dedicated video memory and other technology that allows web developers to create emersive site designs that work well on these machines.
    Mobile devices, on the other hand, have a limited bandwidth, much smaller screen resolution, lack some of the more complicated software to render certain types of programming on web sites.
    Most importantly, consumers have different user behaviors between using their computers and their phones. Thus – not only for technology reasons, most web sites don’t ‘work’ for users on their mobile device.
