  • iPhone Pwns Smartphone Surfing!


    AdMob, one of the biggest advertiser network in the mobile phone market claims the iPhone beats all the other smartphones in terms of web usage.

    Facts include:

    * Worldwide, the iPhone makes up 33% of all smart phone traffic
    * In the U.S., the iPhone accounts for 49.5 % of all tracked requests
    * Against all phones, including non-smart phones, Apple had 11.2 % of mobile online traffic. The iPod Touch was getting 6.7% and the Motorola RAZR has dropped to 2.9% of traffic
    There's a huge differenece between iPhone and Nokia, second in the list. On an other note, the jump of its share from 10% to 49.5% in US online traffic is remarkable.



    Please note that it does not reflect phone sales as data usage depends on browser experience, which means Mobile Safari excels in the field.

    The upcoming OS 3.0 will add some more and much-needed features to Safari like Open in New Tab and copy/ paste which will help the figures boost further

    The complete study by AdMob can be located in a PDF here.

      When I got divorced the kids/house/dog/62" plasma/car etc were not even mentioned.

      My iPhone was though!

      Needless to say, all I've still got is my phone, but I'm still happy!

      ... i kinda like the g1's browser more than the iphone's

      it's a lot faster (even on wifi) and it doesn't crash like safari. i'm not saying i like the g1 better than my iphone but when i'm at home i always take my g1 out to browse the internet and text ppl on my iphone lol

      Not surprising, the iPhone is the only mobile device with a REAL internet browsing experience. Multi-touch + Large screen + safari/OS ftw!

      Cept for one thing, Flash. Booo!

      Those numbers are slightly misleading.

      Apple only has a slight edge on Nokia.
      33% compared to 22.6%.
      It's misleading because they bunched Apple into one (surely the iPhone and iPhone 3G are similar, but not the same) and they split all the Nokia models apart.

      But still there's only two sorts of iPhone.

      And, to be honest, there isn't as much between them as there is between the Nokia's.

      The reason being is that most iphone's until recently were sold with unlimited data. The others you can get on contract with out!
