GoMo also thanks 51Degrees.mobi for its Charts of The Week (CoTW)
Normally, GoMo News would run a the Chart of The Week (CoTW) regularly produced by 51Degrees.mobi which helps businesses and organisations to optimise their websites for mobile performance. But the company’s elves are busy helping Sanat Claus this week. We were hoping to talk the company into producing a table which showed that specific handsets are popular with youngsters (think ten years old) in the UK. Our own instincts suggest that the Nokia Lumia 520 is very popular with this age group because it is inexpensive and runs WP8 (Windows Phone). Apparently, it’s much easier to personalise you handset completely by changing WP8′s tiles than it is to do something similar with an iPhone or Android handset.
Our other suggestion for parents who haven’t bought their ten year old a handset for Xmas yet, is a BlackBerry.
It might sound obvious but BlackBerries have always been popular for their Qwerty keyboards and youngsters fingers are ideally suited for pressing the keys.
We’re not sure if BlackBerry’s IM system – BBM (Black Berry Messenger) is popular with this age group but it could easily compete against the likes of WhatsApp and Facebook.
GoMo did, of course, try ringing Santa to ask him which handset most 10 years have asked for for Xmas but his mobile just goes straight to voicemail.
So to thank 5!Degrees were going to mention some of the company’s impressive milestones over the course of 2013.
