A story by Philip Elmer-Dewitt from Fortune points to Apple’s iOS as the king in mobile web usage, crushing Android by a mile. All of iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, etc) have a combined usage of more than 50% of all mobile devices.
The chart showed Apple taking more than 50% of mobile web traffic month after month.
This, despite the growth of Android phones and tablets in the last year and the fact that Android is now the leading smartphone OS in the world.
The difference between iOS and Android is to large I could not hardly believe it. So, I pulled out the traffic data from YugaTech in the last 5 months (since January) and checked the traffic coming from mobile devices and tablets.
Indeed, the iPad, iPhone and the iPod Touch were in the top 3. Their combined traffic is over 48%. Android devices in the top 10 accounted for only around 12%.
Interestingly, the Sony-Ericsson Xperia Arc is the most popular Android handset followed by the Galaxy S2.
