Mobile Turns Responsive

The Tablet Device followed the introduction of the Smartphone by a couple of years. Since its introduction, the Tablet Device has become the device of choice around the home, in retail shops & restaurants as well as in designer show rooms and real estate sales offices. No longer do we need to go to a desk to use a laptop or desktop computer, we simply carry a tablet to access websites, pdfs, sample galleries, listings and more.

With the addition of the tablet device, the browsing experience was not optimal. The desktop website was too large to display correctly and the mobile website was too small. Enter Responsive Websites. A Responsive website detects the device being used to browse the internet and adjusts the text, images and navigation to display great on all devices.
