* Windows Mobile OS, Palm OS and others account for the remaining web browsers. The iPhone's 50% share a pretty big number. Fortunately for us, getting our sites to shine on aniPhone is relatively simple task. After all, the full featured Safari browser will do a good job ofrendering our site in the phone as long as it already looks great on a desktop machine. That's not enough, though, as we want to create sites fully optimized for mobile browsing. Not justshrink down the existing site to display on the phone. But the basic point is, the iPhone offers an environment that is very conducive to displayingbeautiful mobile sites.What can we gather from this? If you design and market sites that cater to iPhone, Android based phones and Symbian OS andyou've got over 85% of your potential market covered. Put the forethought in to building these sites in a standards compliant way and they will degradenicely to the majority of devices. This should create an experience that ranges from elegant totolerable on the majority of people who will be access your site. A new standard resolution: 240x320. With all this talk about different screen sizes, it's important to note something important: The trend in display size is moving towards a common resolution of 240x320. It's becomingsomething of a standard in the same way that modern desktop web sites are optimized to displayat roughly 1280x800. 75% of phones provide a screen resolution of 240x320 pixels or more. This number is onlyincreasing. It will become more of a standard. Keeping 240 pixels as your optimal screen width will ensure the best user experience for themajority of mobile web browsers. Now, this doesn't mean you should strictly code widths of 240 pixels into your divs or images, it just means you should design with the thought in mind that most people will be viewing your site atthis resolution. A good standards compliant layout will adapt to many screen sizes.A word about Height. While width is the real obstacle in designing for mobile platforms, height doesn't seem to be aschallenging. Touch interfaces make navigating and scrolling through content a breeze. Commonsense should tell you not to drop a 5 inch high header at the top of your mobile site, but height ofsite is generally not much an issue. Those who frequently browse the web from well-equippeddevices are accustomed to scrolling.Advise on creating layouts that work on all phones. So how do we cater to all of these devices? Do we create a separate site for each devices, similarto the Netscape 4 days of the past?
