  1. I think we all new it was comming. I’m not so sure I think of a tablet closer to a phone. I think tablets are closer to a computer. On a phone it is just so limited in terms of how productive you can be online. With a tablet such as an iPad you can be very productive and can move quickly from task to task as is the experience with a computer.

    Thus before we all go gearing our sites to mobile users I would consider the notion that every tablet view be counted as a typical desktop computer view.

    That is just my 2 cents any how.

    Don’t get me wrong online marketing and advertising efforts should have a big time focus and sensitivity to the mobile user but I dont think we should all make that our primary focus.

    Thanks for the post!!
