The Pew Research Center just released a presentation “Information on the Go: Digital technology trends impacting today’s libraries and librarians” online. Interestingly, this presentation will soon be given by Kristen Purcell on September 20 as the keynote address at the Arizona State Library’s E-Reader Summit and Technology Showcase. In this presentation, Kristen Purcell will highlight trends in mobile internet access, e-reader and tablet computer use, and mobile apps.
An excellent presentation on mobile Web published online yesterday by Bryan Rieger. Perhaps, we should we rethink the way we’ve been designing websites for mobile devices.
I have heard all the hype about mobile being the next big thing for the past few months. Also, I have read numerous reports predicting the growth and future of mobile Web. According to Wikipedia, mobile Web reached an important milestone in 2008. The transition from fixed to mobile Web use was reached when mobile access to the Internet exceeded desktop computer-based access for the first time. A recent Morgan Stanley report indicates that the growth of the mobile web has been exponential – including the mobile devices such as the Kindle, the iPhone (iPhone) and other smartphones, web-enabled tablets, GPS systems, video games and wireless home appliances. Furthermore, Morgan Stanley’s analysts believe that, based on the current rate of change and adoption, the mobile web will be bigger than desktop Internet (Internet) use by 2015.
Well, I think the mobile Web is here to stay whether you like it or not. The mobile Web will soon dominate the use and traffic of the Internet. Perhaps, it is the future of the Internet.
