A new US-based study by Keynote Competitive Research, part of internet testing & monitoring group Keynote Systems, has found the most-frustrating mobile web experience for smartphone owners is web pages that are slow to load.
Two-thirds of respondents cited this as a recent problem, with ‘website not optimised for smartphone’ named as the next most frustrating issue.
Corporate use of personal devices expected to double in 2 years
Juniper Research is forecasting that the ‘bring your own device’ trend will see the number of employee-owned smartphones and tablets used at work more than doubling in the next two years. By 2014 there’ll be 350 million personal mobile devices being used at work, compared to less than 150 million this year.
It means almost 23% of all consumer-owned tablets and smartphones will have a business function as well.
HTC has published results for the second quarter of its financial year, with revenue of NT$91.04 billion (£1.95 billion) and net income of NT$7.40 billion.
Both figures are up from the previous quarter but down year-on-year.
