State of The Internet Report – Q3 2012

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?
