What is the size of the mobile market? [infographic]
Microsoft Tag has just released a neat infographic highlighting statistics on how people are using mobile phones in 2011. I also dug up a great video that featured late last year with an array of great mobile “growth” statistics, stats and facts for 2011.
The infographic shows that over one billion of the worlds 4+ billion mobiles phones are now smartphones, and 3 billion are SMS enabled (weirdly, 950 million mobile phones still don’t have SMS capabilities). In 2014, mobile internet usage will overtake desktop internet usage and already in 2011, more than 50% of all “local” searches are done from a mobile device.
Then we have 86% of mobile users are watching TV while using a mobile phone, 200+ million (1/3 of all users) access Facebook from a mobile device and 91% of all mobile internet use is “social” related.
