IPhone world’s fastest growing device
According to AdMob the iPhone is the world’s fastest growing device. Apparently they measure this by number of requests from the iPhone on the internet (measuring this is easy to do, but also easy to spoof). More interesting than the iPhone is some other stats found in the article. Smart phones accounted for 25.8% of worldwide traffic (hard to believe), and that the iPhone in conjunction with the other top five smart phones accounted for 12.9% of all US traffic (call me skeptical).
One supposes it is in AdMob’s interest to pump the numbers up to eleven for mobile browsing since the company is devoted to monetizing mobile advertising so the stats aren’t too surprising. And if they did reach the numbers with some wonky math just think of it as a glimpse into the future.
