Our responsive web design now includes 7 inch tablets
Mobile computing is changing again. With Amazon introducing their new Kindle Fire, the 7 inch tablet market will certainly gain traction. Barnes and Noble will soon follow with a better version of the Nook Color and Samsung is bringing a new 7 inch Galaxy Tab to the market this quarter. So how do you get your website to work with all devices?
The answer is with Responsive Web Design. By building a “responsive” site, the website adjusts and scales to the device automatically. Rather than make the user adjust to the site by zooming and pinching, the site adjusts to their screen size of their device. To accomplish this, we actually design for all standard screen sizes and incorporate programming to recognize each device’s screen size.
In the past, our responsive web designs have been formatted for a desktop/laptop size, a 10 inch (iPad) size and a smartphone size. We are now building sites that include the 7 inch screen size. This means that our sites will work on the four standard screen sizes and will bring a rich, user experience to more and more devices.
