Bucharest Expat Mobile Devices
More people today are viewing websites and accessing the internet via their handheld device. No matter the OS, handheld devices such as data phones and tablets are a convenient tool for those on the go. Combine that with the fact that Romania has some of the fastest internet speeds in the world AND one can hardly go anywhere within Bucharest without attracting multiple wi-fi signals. Have you been on the Bucharest Metro lately? Take notice that nearly all of the people are “connected” with some type of mobile device. At Bucharest Expat, we’ve decided that the time is now to offer our series of websites to those with mobile devices. No more “pinching” and “squinting” to get the information you need. Simply login to our website(s) from any mobile device, and our responsive site layout tailors itself to suit your screen.
