iPhone is number one smartphone worldwide based on mobile web use

iPhone is number one smartphone worldwide based on mobile web use
According to its fourth quarter report on mobile web usage,  AdWeb says that the iPhone was responsible for 54% of all mobile web traffic in North America for the three month period. Apple's touchscreen delight also accounted for 56% of mobile internet use in Latin America, and 78% and 51% for Western and Eastern Europe respectively. In Oceania, which includes New Zealand and Australia, 92% of mobile internet use is from the iPhone. The Symbian OS remains the leader in Africa and Asia. In those locations, the iPhone is second with an 8% and 27% share. Throughout most of the world, the Symbian OS follows the iPhone in second place except for the United States. In the U.S., Symbian's share is very small and the Android OS is second with 27% of mobile web use.

In North America, the iPhone and iPod Touch were numbers one and two in usage during December with the Motorola DROID a hard charging third for all devices-second in the smartphone category. Some might consider that an amazing achievement considering that the DROID has been out only since the first week in November. Other smartphones in top ten internet usage for December (in North America) include the HTC Dream and Hero in 3rd and 4th. In 5th place was the BlackBerry 8300 Curve, followed by the Motorola Cliq, HTC Magic and the Palm Pre. The HTC DROID Eris was 9th and the Samsung Moment rounds out the top ten.
