Mobile is really hitting it off! Mobile websites, Mobile applications, Mobile everything! It’s extremely exciting to see the expansion of technology; in it’s most portable form, the mobile phone.

Mobile websites, are the new information high way. And what is the outcome? Faster, easier search results. Mobile websites offer only the essential, vital information a website displays. Think of a mobile phone as a highlighter, mobile websites only present the highlighted information.

Mobile websites are designed slightly different. The design is condensed to a minimalistic. Information is displayed horizontally as opposed to vertical and navigation is usually located at the bottom. This is due the smaller screens mobile phones possess and the idea that the content is what is most important.

Nice selection of site, all very different, but basically the same functionality.


Interesting stuff - could be a blog in it's own right.
Are these all done with CSS alone, or are they redirecting to a different mobile-only site?


Brilliant post. Great comparisons between web and mobile sites. It's difficult for clients to envisage a mobile version of their website, but this post will certainly help them. Thanks Vilma.


Nice collection...can you recommend a good plug in for wordpress that will automatically convert my existing website to a mobile layout. tanks
