    Is mobile web the future?

    I see most people nowadays use their mobiles to access the web. Do you think in the next years this phenomena will increase? Please give any statistics or studies you read recently regarding this.

    On the websites I manage, about 30-35% of all visitors are using mobile devices.

    I imagine in different areas of the world it's more, and in other areas it's less. Whether it goes up or down in the future is anyone's guess.

    Is mobile browsing something you should consider when building a website? Yes. It isn't going away anytime soon.

    I don't call it the future.
    Because really that is common.
    As a web developer we need to adapt the latest technology always.

    It's likely that, in the near future, there will be more people accessing the web on smaller, portable devices than on the desktop. All trends seem to be pointing in that direction, so it has big implications for how sites are designed and built. Sites that are only usable on a big screen with a broadband connection are becoming less viable.

    Definitely this one.

    In creating a website nowadays, optimizing it for mobile is already a requirement not just an option.

    Do you maintain a web site? Can you look at the logs for the past few years and check your own visits? Our own company logs indicate a growing number of visitors accessing our site via mobile devices.

    Hi! I've just seen such an informative picture which gives an answer to your question about mobile web future. http://content.edgar-online.com/edga...1092BII030.GIF. As the usage of mobile devices is constantly growing – guess that the mobile web shouldn't really lag.

    Yes. The MOBILE experience has become an integral part of our daily life. The entire world has gone mobile. People are using mobile applications in their smartphones and tabs or pads for every aspect of their lives. Whether your business is serving the B2B or B2C market mobile apps are now a must-have business strategy for companies across all industries and sectors. By 2015, it is estimated that a whopping $119 billion will be spent via MCommerce, or mobile commerce. <snip/>

    I guess it's not only about youth. Everyone uses smartphones, because it's really convenient.
