Apple takes mobile web usage crown from Nokia, Samsung zips past, too

It's been more than five years since the first iPhone was introduced, and gave a rocket boost to mobile web usage, but last month was actually the first to mark Apple surpassing Nokia in 15 billion visits measured on 3 million sites by StatCounter.
Samsung also zipped past Nokia, but only by a hair - despite Sammy's commanding market share, iOS users are much more avid web users, which explains why Apple, with market share declining a bit, managed to take the top in mobile web usage for the firs time.
“It’s good and bad news for Apple,” confirmed StatCounter CEO Aodhan Cullen. “Apple has been handed the number one spot despite its falling usage share. A decline in Nokia usage from January 2012 to January 2013 means the Finnish company ceded the top spot to Apple. Samsung, in contrast to Apple, has seen an increase in its usage share since January 2012.”

Using the web on a Apple iphone has got to be the WORST overall experience ever. My Galaxy Note 2 pimp slaps any useless watered down iphone.
