2010 Mobile Web Progress Study by dotMobi confirms continued explosion of mobile-friendly content. Have you seen how many cell phones are out there these days?
Recent mobile website growth worldwide makes the early desktop Web expansion look like a short-range missile compared to the atomic bomb.
In 2008, the study showed 150,000 mobile-ready websites. In 2010 the numbers jumped to approximately 3.01 million mobile websites.
We’re talking about a two-year growth of more than 2,000 percent.
This latest mobile growth trend easily outstrips desktop growth in its early stages.
The desktop Web showed a growth rate of only 1,333 percent between 1996 and 1998, according to Netcraft.
“Many brands and businesses are seeing that mobile is a vital, unique channel and not just a smaller desktop Web,” said Trey Harvin, CEO of dotMobi.
A recent Morgan Stanley report agrees “mobile internet is ramping faster than desktop internet did and will be bigger than most think.”
Sidestepping the desktop dark ages of spinning email gifs and blinking text, mobile web has emerged as a sexy, sleek communications platform.
Businesses large and small need to carve out their territory. Mobile phones are becoming a huge driving force in how the world and your customers view the web.
