QVC’s mobile site also led in response time tests for the three other mobile devices measured by Gomez in August: Sprint’s HTC Hero (1.90 seconds), T-Mobile’s HTC Dream (3.59 seconds) and Verizon’s Droid (1.97 seconds). Amazon’s mobile site finished second in testing for the HTC Hero (3.91 seconds) and the Droid (4.02 seconds). Dell’s mobile site came in second for testing on HTC’s Dream (5.77 seconds).

Gomez measures response time as the total time required for each mobile site to load on a user’s phone. Load times can be influenced by location, carrier, network protocol and signal strength, and some measurements start from mobile site landing pages that result from redirections once a mobile device is identified.
