What OS is used more than any other mobile OS to view MobilityDigest?
As you know from our infamous MDLeaks series, we have a LOT of internal emails and most of them include insults, threats and system crippling trojans, worms and viruses.
Every once in a while however, an email is sent among our writers group that has some interesting and valuable information.
For instance, we found out that 39.4% of the people that read MobilityDigest on their mobile devices are using an Android powered phone or tablet. And that’s a lot. The most? Nope.
Well, fine, MobilityDigest covers a LOT of Windows Phone information, surely that OS covers the most usage, right? Wrong again. Windows accounts for a measly 3.7% of all mobile usage.
Well, that leaves the elephant in the room. iOS.
iOS accounts for a staggering 53.11% of all mobile usage for Mobility Digest. Broken down, the iPad commands 21.21%, the iPhone 27.27% and the iPod Touch, 4.63%. More people are using an iPod touch to look at MobilityDigest.com than people with Windows Phones.
Why is this? Well, I know why it’s like that for me. The iPhone and the iPad are my primary devices both in and out of the home. When I want to browse the ‘net, watch a video, or play a game, I grab my iPad. If I want a quick consumption of information without much effort at all, I reach for the iPhone.
It could also be that the iPhone is the best selling smart phone ever with over 100 Million units shipped as of early this March. The iPod’s mobile useage numbers could probably be attributed to the fact that the iPod is the number one selling device in its segment. And as for the iPad? Well duh, it’s the number one selling tablet device – ever. Who would have guessed that the best selling devices in their segments would make up the most amount of users…… /sarcasm.
Bringing up the rear in our stats list was Blackberry with 1.44% and SymbianOS with 1.14%. Nokia, Samsung, and LG’s mobile browsers all made up just 1.09% COMBINED.
Have a great iDay.
Posted from – you guessed it – my iPad 2.
I presume RSS feeds and apps like that WP7 News App that we got a traffic spike from are not represented here. So maybe the results show more about how our users use their phones than anything. We probably need a poll about what mobile OS they are using 😉
Or maybe iApple and Android users simply have not figured out how to use their keyboard yet. Just saying.
Honetly, I feel this site is not very welcoming to WP users. Those numbers dont surprise me.
@efjay: I think the majority of the staff use Windows Phones actually…internal poll time I guess
Well I am referring to readers, not sure this would be their first stop for WP7 news. There are a few good articles occasionally but overall it seems to be more focused on making jabs at WP7. IMO.
According to my math that leaves .12%, are those the windows mobile users like myself?
I don’t think I’ve ever been to this site on my phone. Plus, efjay speaks the truth. Better WP7 news through Weave.
I think Doug Smith is padding the results. Or should I say “I-padding” the results. 😉
IF 3.7 PERCENT IS TRUE…. THATS NOT A BAD DEAL AT ALL…. KEEP WRITING ABOUT WINDOWS PHONE 7 SO THE IOS FAN BOYS CAN SEE AND READ ABOUT WHO GREAT THE WP7 PLATFORM….IPAD 2?? I DOUBT IT….
Ed, what do you doubt about the iPad 2?
I doubt ipad 2 users use the tabs to read news… This users buy this tabs for entertainment, and that’s what Steve jobs want buyers to do.
From personal experience, in order of most to least use: I read the news, watch movies, play games, and write. Most of the people that I know with iPads do about the same. The news consumption apps on the iPad are stellar.
