By 2013, mobile phones will overtake PCs as the most common Web access device worldwide. — Gartner Key Predictions for IT Organizations and Users for 2010 and Beyond
Hi, the mobile Web is a common topic in the weekly meta meta fashion blog TECH tips. This time I would like to focus on the development, that is also sometimes called the Post-PC era.
The above-mentioned prediction is based on the total number of existing Internet capable smartphones compared to the worldwide install base of PCs.
Of course, many smartphone users are not aware of the possibilities of their devices or are not using the Internet to the same extent as they are using it on traditional devices, yet. But this can change over time, when cheap data plans become standard and mobile phone/tablet hardware, software and infrastracture matures.
What does this mean for blogs? More and more people will access blogs on mobile devices with a small form factor in the future. The good news for us bloggers is, that blogs usually already have a natural minimalistic layout, which is ideal for mobile use, or are accessed via RSS or Facebook anyway. Only small changes are necessary to make a blog mobile-friendly, compared to the typical overloaded, multi-column, Flash-based Web site.
