This chapter covers the design of an effective mobile web presence so that the interaction will be friendly for users.

Every organization is different and has different sets of clients. For the University of Southern Queensland (USQ) the dominant vendor was Apple's iOS (iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch), with a 34% market share. This was followed by Nokia with 28% and Samsung and Blackberry with 10% each. HTC accounted for 7%, while LG, Motorola, Sony Ericsson and many more combined to form the final 11%. iOS as a
platform is an attractive target for which to develop, given the relative homogeneity of the platform. Nokia is also large enough to merit attention, but further accounts for a wide range of device capabilities. With over 310 different mobile devices, the amount of testing and
development for each one becomes a cost factor that must be
considered. It is important to survey clients to find out what devices they are using and ensure that the dominant platform is supported.
