Mobile Web

It seems the future direction of the Web and the growth of mobile technology are inevitably integrated. Various mobile ICT devices are widely available in the market and their facilities increase every day. The term "Mobile Web" which has appeared in ICT literature recently, refers to the Web platform and web-based services which are accessible through mobile devices. The future of this trend seems very promising. Of course, there are some limitations that somehow hinder the usability of Mobile Web at present time. For example, mobile devices’ small screen size, limitations in the location of mobile user, lack of windows and limited types of accessible pages in these services are some of the existing challenges for users and designers. For more information you can have a look at the Mobile Web Initiative website.
