The mobile web has definitely come to stay. With more access to the web via mobile phones, we’ve seen lots of web products designed for easy access on mobile phones.
Most people now access Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, and other web products via their mobile phones.
Local web products and services too are not left out in the fray. In 2010 alone, there were about 20 web products that became easily accessible via our mobile phones.
As we expect to see more exciting mobile web products and applications in 2011, I’ve made a list of some of the mobile web products that rocked our phones in 2010.
I’ve made an attempt to diversify the list of mobile web products around several markets.
Personally, these mobile web products were very useful to me and I’ll continue to use them in 2011.
In no particular order, here’s my list of Nigeria’s coolest mobile web products of 2010.
