    4. Why Mobile Matters

    5. Mobile matters because: 1. People (including your clients) are using it. 2. It’s only getting bigger.

    6. Which of these phones *cannot* access the mobile web?

    7. All of these phones can access the mobile web (The challenge is creating a quality user experience)

    8. As of July 2009, how many Americans were actively using the mobile web? *Active = accessing it at least monthly.

    9. With the mobile web, the early adoption demographics are much different.

    10. . .

    11. Improved Hardware As processor speeds increase and full graphics systems get embedded onto single chips, phones will soon be able to embody a PC experience as soon as they get near a flat screen TV and a keyboard. -Steve Rubel

    12. Improved Software • The mobile browser landscape is an absolute mess, but it’s improving • Going forward, most new touch phones will use a WebKit-based browser. That’s good.

    13. Faster Connections

    14. Why the mobile web matters • Surprising high mobile usage – and it’s increasing rapidly. • Early adopters of mobile technology do not fit the typical early-adopter profile: users are younger and are people of color.  • Devices, browsers, and connections are improving

    15. Understanding Mobile

    16. The Mobile Ecosystem - Phones Feature PhonesSmartphones Touch Phones

    17. The Mobile Ecosystem: Carriers and Networks • Carriers provide mobile services and maintain networks. They provide customers contracts or prepaid plans. • Networks carry wireless signals. • Different generations of networks: 2G, 3G, and 4G

    18. The Mobile Ecosystem: Platforms and Operating Systems • Platforms: Java ME, Blackberry, iPhone, and Android. • Operating Systems: Mac OS X, Android, Symbian and Windows Mobile

    19. The Mobile Ecosystem: Medium Types • SMS • Mobile Websites • Mobile Web Applications • Native Applications

    20. Benefits of Mobile • Personal to the user • Capable of sending and receiving information at all times • Goes everywhere

    21. Challenges of Mobile Mobile Devices: -Have tiny displays -Utilize poor browsers -Suffer from flaky connections

    34. Content considerationsHow to get from here…

    35. …to here. • Think small • We eliminated: • graphics • fillable forms and .pdf’s • all long pages that require a lot of scrolling • most videos • left-hand navigation

    36. Prioritizing mobile content • Again, eliminate all long, complicated content • Then, think about the kinds of information mobile users might be browsing for (e.g. baseball scores, flight schedule updates). • What is our equivalent?

    37. Eliminate left-hand navigation • cut text to ¼ of original length (or less); retain only most essential information • move phone link to top of abbreviated page • convert all phone numbers into links

    38. Prioritizing existing content • Choose content that is already brief or that can be easily edited down • Choose content that a mobile user would be more likely to be looking for on mobile device, rather than on a desktop browser

    39. Who is our most likely audience? Duh–uh-uh

    40. Even better

    41. New content Same questions: • What kinds of information might people being looking for on their mobile devices? • What topics can we address reasonably well in a small space? • How to distill messages down? • What formatting to use to avoid too much scrolling?
