As smart phones become more common and data plans more affordable, mobile internet access has exploded recently across the world – and it’s only going going up from here. Whether you’re a business owner, IT manager in charge of your company’s website – or a developer – you should pay close attention to website mobile usage statistics.
Similar to the desktop environment, there are more than one mobile operating systems (OS) in use – how else can our job get harder, right? We need to format our sites to make sure they appear correct whether they’re viewed on mobile devices (cell phones or tablets) powered by iOS (Apple), Android, BlackBerry or Windows. To make statistics a little easier to read, people at Net Marketshare have created this cool interactive mobile market share graph which shows the percentage of different mobile OS browsers. Hopefully this will help you to make better decisions for your website.
