San Diego, CA. May 22, 2012 - Tabor Communications Inc. (TCI), a leading international media, advertising, and communications company and publisher of a complete data-intensive computing portfolio that includes HPCwire, HPC in the Cloud, Digital Manufacturing Report, and Datanami, announced today the introduction of mobile optimization for it's flagship publication, HPCwire. The new capability may be viewed by accessing www.hpcwire.com from any mobile device.
Mobile optimized websites give users the ability to access the information contained therein from virtually any smart phone or tablet, running on any operating system. One of the most attractive features is an auto-formatted viewing plane that provides an optimal display for the user, regardless of the screen size. Other benefits include ease of use, versatility, and an enhanced reading experience, not obtainable from portals that have not enabled the technology.
Analysts predict over 3/4 of the total world population to be online by end of 2012, with smart phone users increasing their numbers by 18.4%, and tablet users increasing their numbers by 62.8% over 2011. E-commerce shopping trends are expected to follow similar increases, which means mobile optimization will become increasingly important for vendors who wish to take advantage of this technology as part of their go-to-market strategy.
"As a media and communications company which specializes in covering advanced computing trends and technologies, we are always on the lookout for new developments to enhance the reading experience for our audiences", said Jeff Hyman, President and Group Publisher, Tabor Communications Inc. "With the percentage of our audience who access their information from the Internet using a mobile device expanding at a phenomenal rate, the decision to migrate to mobile optimization now, beginning with HPCwire and for all our publications by the end of the next quarter was unquestionable. We remain true to our goal of providing an outstanding experience for everyone who accesses our portals, no matter where, when, or from what device they prefer to use, allowing our readers true freedom of choice."
