With Dreamforce right around the corner, we’re busy planning, strategizing and preparing for the excitement that comes along with the industry’s largest cloud computing event of the year. The keynote on Wednesday morning is a game-changer and the anticipation for the big announcement is half the fun.
As I look at the evolution of installed applications and increasing capabilities of web applications, I’m no longer concerned about compatibility, but instead I am cognizant of screen real estate. How much do you need to see to make the experience satisfying?
Below is a breakdown of task preferences based on screen size (from smallest to largest):
Blackberry (2.2 to 2.6 inches)
- Text (IM, Twitter, etc.)
iPhone / Droid (3.5 to 4.3 inches)
- Text (IM, Twitter, etc.)
- Photo Review (Facebook, Flickr, etc.)
iPad (9.7 inches)
