A few months ago I included a little graph in a blog which showed that by 2015, access of the internet from mobile devices will overtake access from desktop/laptop computers. Embarrassingly I can't find the source, but there are quite a few similar predictions out there.
Quite a lot of what I do at work is in the financial sector and I wondered if this 2015 prediction held true for tasks like internet banking.
2 and a half years is an awfully long time on the internet but we're rightly already considering mobile as a core medium and factoring in the many mobile mindsets into our journey work. Just because it hasn't overtaken desktop yet doesn't mean mobile internet access isn't already huge.
But it would be useful to see if people are dividing their tasks between what they believe they can achieve easily on a mobile device (research, social networking, browsing) and what they can more efficiently do when they get to a fixed machine (maybe internet banking, form-filling, etc?). And it would be useful to understand how people arrive at those impressions before they decide whether to open a browser.
I'm a bit split - could banks and other big login-y sites help speed up the curve towards mobile internet adoption by making more responsive environments, or will they increasingly become the only thing that people do from a desktop machine?
Just some starters for 10 really. Don't know if any of that made sense...
