Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) June 28, 2012
In response to an explosion of people accessing the internet from their mobile devices, Handset Detection, a mobile browser, tablet, and console detection company service in Melbourne, Australia, will soon double their “free tier” model from 10,000 to 20,000 detections a month.
Handset Detection performs the vital service of detecting for website owners which mobile devices are accessing their site. This service not only gives site owners valuable intelligence about their users, but allows them to design their sites to render properly on devices like tablets with wide screens, iPhones with touch screens, Blackberries with trackballs and thousands of others with various screen sizes and navigation features. This service is vital, considering the statistic reported by Gigaom that mobile usage will surpass desktop usage by as early as 2014.
The newly upgraded free tier will affect over 6,500 current users and anyone can sign up now to join in. The company also continues to offer several pay models, providing some customers multiple millions of detections per month.
"We love our customers and thank you for using Handset Detection,” says founder Richard Uren, “and as we’re seeing our customers’ needs grow, we're really happy that we're in a position where we can double the amount of mobile device detections that we give away for free.”
Uren, who describes the new model as “twice as much free love from Handset Detection,” went on to say, “More and more people are browsing from mobile devices, so we're happy to raise the bar on our free detection tier."
