Provo Utah mobile
I recently gained access to a smart phone with web browsing capabilities.
Playing with the phone, I soon became dismayed with how poorly local web sites show up on mobile devices.
I believe that the proliferation of smart phones, internet hotspots and unlimited mobile data plans will open up a great opportunity for small businesses.
The whole point of a smartphone is that people have the smartphones there, in their hands, as they explore an area.
Right now this extremely lucrative market is being dominated by multi-national corporations investing in expensived multi-national navigational tools.
Rather than letting smart phones become a tool of big business to steal local business, I would love to see local businesses add mobile capability to their web sites.
For this reason, I've started focusing on the mobile version of this site.
I believe that the best way for a web site to go mobile is to develop a mobi site as a subdomain of the primary site. The mobile site contains a summarized version of the primary site.
So, I am developing the subdomain m.ProvoUtah.US as a mobile site. My goal is to include links to other mobi optimized sites Utah County.
It's really hard to find these sites. Even if you already have a listing in ProvoUtah.US, I would appreciate your adding links to mobi optimized pages. I appreciate those who pay the listing fee, but I don't bite those who don't.
BTW, if you tweeted the line Hey @CommunityColor, you should add _____ to http://m.ProvoUtah.US and ____ was a local site, I probably would do it.
