So, mobile traffic is growing, many read on their smartphones and tablets, many consume content and will contact you regarding diff matters of your business. But how many will buy using smartphones / mobile devices? I know many are buying stuff and making payments via mobile applications (Android and IOS) but what about mobile webpages?
Many mobiles are different
Some mobiles are phones with diff browsers
Some mobiles are in fact tablets (it depends on how they identify themselves and how you pick from the list)
Many have limited CSS
So, responsive design won't really do the trick 100%. In my case I consume content via desktop, tablet and smartphone/mobile, but everything I buy online is from my desktop computer. What about you? what's your opinion on this regarding the reality now and the perhaps mobile trend?
My personal conclusion so far is: give them the mobile version including "request desktop version" or just making clear there is a fully shopping cart enabled desktop version.
The web is going nuts. I'm happy of using my own cms, making it easier to control the output for my sites :)
