Measuring Tablet Mobile Web Performance

Mobile Sites No Longer an Option

As of today, Mobitest has 3 new agents: iPad 1, iPad 2 and the Motorola XOOM.These devices are currently only available from our lab in Ottawa, Canada.


Tablets share similar hardware and software with smartphones, thus also sharing the lack of tools and the many performance concerns. However, while mobile phones often solve this problem by creating a simpler mobile site – tablets don’t have that luxury. On tablets users expect to get the fully featured website, and all the performance challenges it comes with.
Example: Walmart website and waterfall on iPhone and iPad 2
