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.

How to Add Google Ads to a Mobile Web Site

In the last few months I've had several questions from 51Degrees.mobi Framework users asking how to implement google adverts on their web sites. Google have a very simple piece of javascript that can be used with high end phones. However this won't work on all phones, and as those familiar with 51Degrees.mobi will know we don't like to exclude people because they don't have the high end phones. The ASP provided for all phones won't work in ASP.NET and requires some tweaking to get working. This blog explains how to use Google AdSense and an ASP.NET user control to get Google Ads on a web page in minutes.
