Screen differences for mobile development

Posted on January 12, 2013


Joe Rabin provided some very useful data,  and I thought it worth repeating.

Joe has been a consultant and technical leader in the mobile space since at least the turn of the century, and is a the CTO of Sponge,  an agency dedicated to Mobile,  and by all accounts provides great service (I’m not a customer, nor affiliated in anyway,  that’s just the word on the street)

Here are the pictures,  very useful,  if you want to know more I’d search out Sponge and have a word with them.
