- Bandwidth: Smartphones tend to use a 3G network, therefore images and other media can slow down page load times – often resulting in a web user leaving your site.
- Modem webpage design takes into account wider screens with high resolutions, however smartphone careens are a lot smaller – this could result in web pages being difficult to navigate and content being missed as it’s not shown on screen.
- A special domain (.mobi) was developed in 2005, enabling a distinctly mobile version of websites to be developed and hosted under this domain – while this can be a good option, it also means that 2 or more websites need to be maintained, resulting in a significant cost to business owners
