Trends in Mobile

mobiFriendly has been powering White Label solutions now for the past couple of months. We already have these solutions in various parts of the country, but are looking for additional ones in larger metropolitan areas (especially in the North East). In the meantime, mobile continues to EXPLODE in front of our very eyes. If you are an agency who already has online clients, you’d be wise to start offering mobile solutions. If not, you are sure to be left behind!

Here are some interesting mobile OS facts:

  • Android has surpassed iOS as the mobile OS
  • While iOS is running on 5 devices (3 versions of the iPhone and 2 iPad models), Android devices are approaching 200
  • Blackberry numbers continue to dwindle; as of this writing they were down to almost 10% of total mobile traffic
  • The Noika/Microsoft partnership is expected to make noise in the latter part of 2011; between them they’ve had plenty of mis-steps in the smartphone market, but their current platform and upcoming plans are formidable

And here are some interesting stats:

  • Smartphone usage is expected to surpass dumb phones by 2011
  • By 2013, 50% of all web traffic will be from mobile (note that Morgan-Stanley released a study earlier this year projecting this to happen by 2014)
  • More men tend to use smart phones (53% versus 47%)

So what are the next big waves in mobile applications? The latter part of 2011 should see some big play in NFC technology. What is NFC? Near Field Communication. Stay tuned for in-depth analysis….coming soon!
