To celebrate our new office move, the 51Degrees team took to the streets of Reading for an evening filled with tasty food and beverages. We stopped off at the handmade burger Co restaurant that was recently opened in Reading at the start of the year.

There's no sign of a cloud when we talk about mobile device detection

The weather outside may be a typically damp British April - but here at 51Degrees.mobi there’s not a cloud in the sky. We’ve developed a mobile device detection solution that doesn’t rely on a ‘cloud’ connection every time there’s a new visitor to your mobile web site.

As far as we’re concerned, cloud services are very well-suited to location-based services and other applications that require vast quantities of data. They’re also often a practical solution when information needs to be shared but needs to be controlled or monitored as well.

However, mobile device detection is a completely different type of situation.

Online retailers lose more web traffic from mobile browsers

Enabling your website for mobile visitors doesn’t just improve the consumer experience. It also makes commercial sense.

The latest organisation to produce figures that prove what we’ve known for a long time is UK-based search marketing agency Mediarun. It’s found that ‘bounce rates’ from mobile devices are around 40%, which is about 10% higher than on desktop browsers. The company says this means 5.6% of all mobile traffic is being lost by online retailers... and that’s a significant amount of lost sales.

51Degrees.mobi implements W3C and Facebook Ringmark browser tests

51Degrees.mobi has become the first device detection business to implement Ringmark in its free-for-commercial-use and paid-for premium data sets. This ground-breaking move makes it easier for developers to create mobile web sites that are tailored to the precise needs of online visitors.

Ringmark is the mobile browser test process introduced at Mobile World Congress 2012 by Facebook. It’s designed to help developers learn more about each mobile web visitor without requiring visitors to provide any personal details. Coremob, the Core Mobile Web Platform Community Group from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), is eventually expected to be handed control of the project.
