DETROIT, Sept. 2, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gomez, the web performance division of Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), today introduced a free Cross-Device Website Compatibility test that allows organizations to see if their web or mobile site displays correctly across mobile smart devices including the iPhone, iPad, BlackBerry and Nexus One.

Over the last two years mobile web usage has taken off across the globe. The adoption of smartphones and faster networks are changing users' mobile web experience expectations. Mobile users now expect similar performance from mobile web applications that they expect from "traditional" web applications. A recent Gomez study of over 1,000 US mobile internet users found that 58 percent of them expect websites to load as quickly on their mobile phone as they do on their desktops.
The Gomez Cross-Device Website Compatibility test displays how any web page actually renders across four mobile smart devices: iPhone 3GS, iPad, BlackBerry Storm 2 and Nexus One (Android), to identify browser problems that may impact end-users. Organizations can use this information to identify web performance issues and ensure they do not result in lost revenue or brand damage.
"It's very challenging for organizations to ensure their web applications work properly on all of the smart devices in today's market," said Eric Schurr, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Gomez. "Most companies don't have the time or resources to maintain a test lab for all of these devices. The free Gomez Cross-Device Website Compatibility test is a no-cost way for companies to identify device compatibility issues for their customers using an iPad, iPhone, Nexus One or BlackBerry."

Gomez offers several free Instant Performance Tests to help organizations learn how their web and mobile sites perform across browsers, locations, and in comparison to competitors.
