Today in Mobile

My colleague Kevin Tofel posted this great piece this morning questioning whether 4G networks will change the mobile Web. After all, when mobile network speeds approach or exceed fixed-line speeds, will there really be any need for dedicated mobile sites? I think the answer is yes, for two reasons: firstly, mobile devices still take longer to load content than PCs do, so a stripped-down site is often better for on-the-go usage. But while that technological hurdle will be overcome in time, there[s also the question of use cases: most of us are looking for different stuff when we use the mobile Web. So for most companies, a dedicated mobile site that takes into account those differences will always be necessary.
