When Apple unveiled the iPhone, it was an innovative new platform for marketers to connect with consumers. Their latest invention, the iPhone 4, continues to broaden the possibilities for Web Marketing by providing iPhone 4 users with a portable internet connection, multitasking capabilities and mini web browser that is user friendly and convenient. Like any web browser, iPhone 4 provides its users with access to the virtually unlimited possibilities of the internet, but with, however, some fundamental differences.
The iPhone 4 is not the first innovation in this type of mobile technology. There are several other mobile phones that go beyond basic telecommunications. PDA's, Personal Digital Assistants, were the first developments in mobile interconnectivity, turning mobile phones into palm sized, personal computers and digital organisers. Blackberry also broke new ground by providing users convenient access to their email via their mobile phone. Advancements in mobile technology have been assisting to organise the lives of busy people for a number of years now, and many different models of mobile phones have had a web browser and internet connectivity, just like the newly released iPhone 4.The difference is the superior technology of the iPhone 4 that has eliminated many of the issues that frustrated users of its predecessors, making it far more functional, usable, simple and uncomplicated. Also, the iPhone 4 has many new enhancements that allow users access to a far greater range of services and applications, and is capable of receiving HTML emails.
For companies looking to take advantage of the new marketing opportunities created by iPhone 4, it is worthwhile considering iPhone 4 development. There are two options for iPhone 4 mobile marketing.
Much like the previous iPhone models, iPhone 4 users can enter a company's web address into their iPhone 4 browser and, providing the website is iPhone 4 compatible, it will be displayed on their screen. Several years after this technology was founded, companies are still developing 'mini' versions of their website, known as web applications, specifically for compatibility with the iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4. This is necessary due to the comparison in size of the iPhone 4 screen to a PC screen, and the Safari Mobile technology that loads the website in the browser of the iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4. When entering a URL into the browser of an iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4 Safari Mobile enables iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4 compatible web applications to be displayed instead of regular websites. Therefore, different methods are required for developing web applications. iPhone 4 development offers a very broad range of innovations and possibilities.
Companies can submit applications across a range of iPhone categories, such as finance, business tools, games, news, sport, weather, lifestyle, travel, education, and more. These applications are uniquely developed by the company or individual. Once submitted to Apple, the application is availed to iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4 users for purchase and download. The applications are stand-alone enhancements to increase the functionality of the iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4.
In the first three days of the iPhone 4 going on sale, 1.7 million were sold, and a total of 3 million were sold in the following two weeks in the US alone. A recent
study by research group IDC predicts that by 2012, there will be 1.3 million iPhone 3G in use in Australia. Globally, mobile advertising is expected to grow from $1billion in 2008 to $2.4billion in 2009 (eMarketer.com). These statistics indicate the importance of iPhone 3G mobile marketing from here forward.
iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4 enables its users to neatly access information and services at their convenience. All iPhone models have specific web applications have the potential to give businesses the edge via enhanced customer service and greater access to their target market.
