Before even starting this post, those who do not own a Nokia S40 series device, still want to save their data usage and would have gotten disappointed if I did not tell you this : ” The same procedure is carried out by Opera mobile browsers”. Now carry on!
The all new Nokia S40 series, having the popular device Nokia Asha promises you a data saving of 90%, thus lowering your data costs and saving your money. For the non-technical people here, the secret is data-compression prior to data fetching on your devices.
That means, as soon as you request for your web page, the device will send the data to Nokia’s servers first, then compress it, after compression of the data, send it on your device. For example, if your facebook page requests for 20 MB of data, that data will get compressed into smaller bytes, and then sent to your network carrier. Now the network carrier will send you the compressed data rather than that 20 MB. Thus, saving your data.
This technology enables users on limited data plans or in areas with limited data coverage to browse the web with a UX previously available only on high-speed networks and unlimited data plans. Now, any mobile consumer can gain access to more content — the content they want — like never before. Check Nokia Developers for more on it.
