Responsive Navigation: Optimizing for Touch Across Devices

Luke Wroblewski and Jason Weaver take a look at a series of touch screen devices ranging from 4″ smart phones up to 13.3″ touch screen tablet/laptops.  They divide the navigation techniques into Split Screen Navigation, Multi-Level Bottom Navigation, Split Screen Navigation with a background, and a Single Row.  They also take a closer look at the easy/okay/hard touch areas across all of the devices.  As usual, smashed it!
