Mobile Web Site Development Considerations

I'm refining my strategy for best practices in designing mobile web sites. I just added a few RSS feeds from quality design firms, and added a Google Alert. I've put together a few things to consider when designing your web site for mobile browsers:
  • Keep it Simple
  • Use White Space
  • Make Wise Use of Images
  • Employ Mobile Specific Sub-Domains
  • Only Include High Value Content
  • Support Many Popular Screen Sizes
  • Rapid Change of Mobile Industry
  • Important Features / Essential
  • Know and Target Your market
Developing a web site or web application that runs well in mobile browsers doesn't have to be a huge undertaking, but you should put together a plan and consider these simple points. More to come as I keep blending together my learning of HTML5 and development of mobile websites.
