When it comes to mobile websites, we have seen little hesitation on creating HTML5 Mobile Websites. We get lot of questions on what is the future for HTML5, what benefits over the WAP, and most important being which mobile phones are supported by HTML5?
Lets try to answer the last one, which mobile phones or smart phones support HTML5?
According to the latest research from Strategy Analytics, worldwide HTML5 phone sales will surge from 336 million units in 2011 to 1 billion units in 2013. HTML5 has quickly become a high-growth technology that will help smartphones, feature phones, tablets, notebooks, desktop PCs, televisions and vehicles to converge through cloud services. Moreover
Neil Mawston, Executive Director at Strategy Analytics, on Dec 7, 2011 in a press conference at Boston said, "HTML5 has quickly become a high-growth technology that will help smartphones, feature phones, tablets, notebooks, desktop PCs, televisions and vehicles to converge in the future. HTML5 will be a pivotal technology in the growth of a multi-screen, 4G LTE cloud that is emerging for mobile operators, device makers, car manufacturers, component vendors and Web app developers. With its potential to transcend some of the barriers faced by native apps, such as cross-platform usability, HTML5 is a market that no mobile stakeholder can afford to ignore."
Now, you need to decide if you still want to create a WAP site or leverage HTML5 to create a highly interactive and engaging mobile website for your users. In either of the cases, do Contact Us, and we would be happy to help.
