Mobile Statistics

Mobile Statistics, Stats & Facts 2011
Over 1 billion of the worlds 4+ billion mobiles phones are now smartphones, and 3 billion are SMS enabled. In 2014, mobile internet usage will overtake desktop internet usage and already in 2011, more than 50% of all "local" searches are done from a mobile device.

86% of mobile users are watching TV while using a mobile phone, 200+ million (1/3 of all users) access Facebook from a mobile device and 91% of all mobile internet use is "social" related.

A few of the key take outs from the video is that over 70% of the worlds population now have a mobile phone, that's over 5 billion mobile subscribers, and in places like the US, it's 9 in 10 people. With children now more likely to own a mobile phone than a book, with 85% of kids owning a phone as to 73% having books! Now that's a pretty crazy statistic. Apple has sold almost 60 million iPhones world wide, while Google's Android OS is growing at 886% year on year and now activating over 160,000 devices a day, across 60 devices in over 40 countries. And at that rate, Android will come from behind to over take Apple as the leading smart phone OS in 2011.
