Compatibility Testing for Mobile Websites

The compatibility testing should ensure that the mobile website is working consistently on maximum Mobile OS and various networks and available bandwidth. This Test is very important for providing optimum user experience. To ensure the site performance and availability across devices, the testing should be performed across all possible network bandwidth. Some of the recommended bandwidth is:
- Only Wi-Fi connection
- Only 4G Connection
- Only 3G connection
- Only 2G connection
- With no SIM card in the device
- In Airplane mode (or all connections disabled)
- Using the network through a USB connection to a PC
- And most interestingly, test intermittent network scenarios that a user might encounter in the real world:

i) Walk out of Wi-Fi range so the connection automatically switches to 3G/2G (for example, in a large building like a hospital or airport, or outdoors)
ii) Ride in an elevator or on a train where the network connection may go up and down
iii) No network connection available at all

In addition to it, the mobile website should be tested on various mobile operating systems widely used i.e.

i) iOS from Apple, devices i.e. IPhone, IPad and IPod Touch
ii) Android by Google, devices i.e. Samsung S3, HTC Desire, Sony Xperia Arc, Samsung Note
iii) Blackberry by RIM, devices i.e. BB Bold, BB Curve
iv) Windows by Microsoft, devices i.e. Nokia Lumia
v) Symbian, devices i.e. Nokia E72
vi) And other mobile OS devices such as Bada, winCE

    An interesting discussion is worth comment. I feel that it is best to write extra on this topic, it might not be a taboo topic but usually persons are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers

    What a website you have here. You have a actual knack for making a weblog readable and easy about the eyes. Some sites appear like train wrecks, but not this 1
