State of The Internet Report – Q3 2012
published by Holger Bartel on
Based on data collected by Ericsson, the volume of mobile data traffic doubled from the third quarter of 2011 to the third quarter of 2012, and grew 16% between the second and third quarter of 2012. […] indicates that for users of mobile devices on cellular networks, the largest percentage of requests (37.6%) came from Android Webkit, with Apple’s Mobile Safari close behind (35.7%). However, for users of mobile devices across all networks (not just cellular), Apple’s Mobile Safari accounted for 60.1% of requests, with Android Webkit responsible for just 23.1%.
In terms of connection speed and mobile web traffic, the only way is up. Interesting to see how Apple’s Mobile Safari has a much higher share of requests across all networks. Android users don't like to use their devices in WiFi networks?
