State of the Mobile Web

17Jun07

Great article on the W3C‘s Mobile Web Initiative Team Blog ‘MWI: Leading Mobile Web Access to Its Full Potential‘. W3C Deputy Director Philipp Hoschka compiles major facts and figures on the current state of the mobile Web. Some snippets:

  • About 1.7 billion mobile phones (out of the approx. total of 2.7 billion) have browsing capability today, exceeding the global number of cars (800 million), personal computers (850 million) and even TVs (1.1 billion).
  • Out of the 1.7 billion, about 200 million browsers are being used actively today. This number is expected to rise to 500 million by 2010.
  • Forrester Research expects "households with a Web-enabled phone that don’t buy mobile data services" to constitute the largest of several "revenue gaps" in 2010.
