Do High-Speed Trains Have High-Speed Websites?

Mobile Web Review: eurostar.com

Author: Edward

This week we divert from looking at recent mobile websites to take a look at an older offering. Eurostar launched a version of its website optimised specifically for mobile devices over two years ago. Like other websites with mobile offerings it will automatically detect mobile users and redirect them to the appropriate m.eurostar.com site. I journey through this mobile offering to see how this older experience has stood up to the test of time.

OTA13 - Jon Arne S: Mobile Web Performance

Author: Joe Davine

With Over the Air 2013 coming to a close last Saturday, I took some time to reflect on some of the more memorable talks given over the two-day event. Mobile and web performance guru Jon Arne Sæterås' presentation was particularly informative, and inspired me to write a quick summary for people that did not get the chance to see it live in person.

Author: Joe Davine

You have just finished creating your sparkling new mobile business app and are eager to promote it to as many people as possible.

51Degrees.mobi introduces simple mobile device detection for PHP developers

51Degrees.mobi, the leading provider of device detection and web optimisation solutions, has expanded its portfolio to include PHP. The PHP scripting language is powerful and flexible, making it a popular choice for web site developers. Around a third of all websites currently use PHP.

This means even more developers and site owners can now discover whether the visiting device is a tablet, whether it’s a smart phone, what the screen size is – and they can then adjust the online content accordingly.

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.

Poor mobile web design will flatten your smartphone battery

If you don’t have a web site designed for mobile phones, you don’t just risk frustrating your customers when they visit you online. You’re also likely to drain their smartphone batteries. That’s the message from a research team based at California’s Stanford University.

The researchers published a paper entitled “Who Killed My Battery: Analyzing Mobile Browser Energy Consumption” at the World Wide Web 2012 conference last week. They used an Android handset to browse a variety of popular web sites, measuring the phone’s energy consumption as it loaded and rendered web pages. As well as analysing each page, the team also measured the energy needed to render individual web elements such as images, JavaScript, and CSS.
