What do the new domain name suffixes mean for mobile web sites?

If I see a street sign that says The Close, I’d expect the road to be a cul-de-sac. If it’s called The Crescent, I’d expect it to be curved. The Boulevard may well have a central reservation. And the High Street will probably have shops. Not always but often.

It’s the same with domain names. A co.uk address suggests a UK business, while co.il is most likely to be based in Israel. There’s .gov for government, .edu for education and so on. We’ve chosen 51Degrees for our business because the suffix indicates a mobile-friendly site.

But the web has just been shaken up. No longer do you need to settle for a suffix chosen by ICANN, the overlords of the internet. (Not even those odd ones like .coop, .museum and .aero). Instead, you can make up your own domain.

Apple will decline, Windows Phone will shine...

Every year, TheFonecast.com offers its mobile industry predictions for the following twelve months. In December, I joined Iain Graham and Mark Bridge to offer my forecast for 2012.

More recently, I was invited by GoMo News to share further details about some of those thoughts... including the potential decline of Apple’s mobile market share and the growth of Microsoft’s Windows Phone operating system.

Will the trend at CES for larger screens lead to poorer mobile web sites?

This year's CES event in Las Vegas promises to be the biggest yet. But it's not just the event that's getting bigger.

We've spotted a trend towards larger devices. Sat-nav systems now have wider screens. Smartphones are becoming 'super phones', growing towards the size of tablets. And – despite the occasional rumour – there's no sign of Apple’s market-leading iPad launching a smaller-screen iPad 3 or iPad 4.

But is bigger really better?  Or easier to use?

It's been a good Christmas for shopping by mobile... especially with a large screen

Christmas 2011 has seem more people than ever using their mobile phones to shop online. That in itself isn’t surprising - but what’s caught our eyes is the scale of the increase.

IBM Coremetrics has released a series of figures that compare 2011’s key shopping days in the USA with last year’s online traffic. First came ‘Black Friday’, which is the day after Thanksgiving Day. It says mobile devices accounted for 14.3% of all US online retail traffic on 25th November, up from 5.6% in 2010. Over two-thirds of that traffic was via Apple iPhones and iPads. Sales on mobile devices reached 9.8% of all online purchases, up from 3.2% year-on-year.

Winter 2011 News Letter

We've been busy creating new mobile products and services to benefit your business.

You may not be aware but, since September, the WURFL Device file has been commercialised. This means using newer WURFL versions for commercial purposes will require a commercial license.

In response to this and other feedback from our customers, we have launched our own Device file. It comes in two versions:

  1. an entry-level open source version called Lite, which can be used commercially and is entirely free; and
  2. a Premium version that provides a comprehensive set of device attributes to help you create the very best mobile experience for your customers.  

Our device detection file contains the very latest smartphones, feature phones, tablets and consoles. Naturally, it’s fully compatible with our Foundation API and Framework products, which have also been upgraded to version 2.
