Vendors shipped 418.6 million mobile phones in 1Q13, compared to 402.4 million units in the same quarter in 2012, according to IDC’s Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker. Tablet shipments are exploding at a faster than 140% year-over-year pace.
With the rapid growth in the smartphone and tablet markets, the average consumer subscriber now owns 1.5 mobile devices. And that number is certain to grow – and drive even more demand for more mobile apps.
Now employees are bringing their own devices (BYOD) to work and demanding to use them to access corporate data. For enterprises, the challenge is to develop and implement mobile strategies that respond to the new realities of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies, deliver business efficiencies and better serve customers.
Faster, Easier Mobile Applications Testing
Mobile Labs’ mission is to make mobile applications testing as easy and efficient as web applications testing. Our mobile applications testing software, Mobile Labs Trust, is an add-in to HP’s Unified Functional Testing (previously known as QuickTest Professional). Our solution allows IT departments to leverage their investments in existing testing tools and their staff’s mobile app knowledge base.
Consumers’ increased appetite for smaller-screen devices will continue to fuel major changes in the way applications are developed and tested. Many IT departments are developing apps for mobile devices before web and desktop applications. And they’re looking to mobile applications test solutions like Mobile Labs Trust to support these mobile-first strategies.
