Transition Consulting Limited (TCL), testing experts in the field of mobile telecommunications with clients including Vodafone and Orange, undertook an independent test of the 51Degrees.mobi .NET Mobile Framework product. TCL created two functionally and visually identical web sites. One used standard ASP.NET, the other ASP.NET with 51Degrees.mobi enhancements. Using the MobiOne iPhone Emulator's resource monitoring features TCL recorded the performance of the two applications in a controlled bandwidth environment. The high level results are shown below.

James Rosewell says "We've worked hard to create a product that will not only support all mobile device's and platforms, but also create a fantastic user experience. Fast end user performance is a critical component of user experience. Web sites designed for the desktop browser and broadband connections are never going to work well on a mobile device with it's small screen and a variable bandwidth mobile data connection."
