51Degrees.mobi Finalist of Mobile Entertainment Awards 2013

51Degrees.mobi has been selected as a finalist in the Mobile Entertainment Awards 2013.  We understand that the web needs to be optimised for all devices in order to offer a fantastic user experience.

Here are some reasons as to why we deserve to win:

Web site performance is very important.

40% of people will exit a website if it does not load within three seconds.

40% of people exit a website if it does not load within 3 seconds.

The problem is that mobile devices have little batteries and can take two seconds to connect to a web site, leaving only one second for your website to load before you lose 40% of your users.

2 seconds to establish a radio connection, leaving 1 second for your website to load.

51Degrees.mobi provides the tools that Content Management Systems (CMS) need to maximise this #goldensecond.

Responsive Web Design (RWD) alone doesn't meet these performance challenges, or accurately detect mobile devices.

20 CMS are supported meaning web site owners don't need to fragment their web presence with separate publishing platforms and can re-use content.
