2017 has been a busy year for DeviceAtlas - new product, new patents, new website, and an award at MWC! We look back at another exciting year charting the ever-changing device landscape. From a product perspective we launched our DeviceAtlas for Apps product at MWC 2017. We've had continued progress on the technology front with an award for innovation at MWC and the granting of another seminal device detection patent, this time from the EU patent office building on last year's US patent, demonstrating our IP leadership in the area of device detection. This year web performance continued to be a big theme in the industry, and we saw a range of developments, both progressive (AMP, PWA) and regressive (the death of Windows Mobile and demise of Blackberry). Video has moved closer to the center of the mobile advertising stage.
