Mobile internet 'growing in popularity'
25 February 2010 — 11:57 AM
An increasing number of people are using their mobile phone to connect to the internet, a study has suggested.
Research from mobile ad-serving platform JiWire found that 56 per cent of Wi-Fi connections do not come from laptops or netbooks, but handheld mobile devices.
Consumers could wish to consider mobile recycling as an option to consider as they can receive cash to put towards a new handset with on-the-go internet access.
Jon Butler, creative brand manager for Envirofone, commented: Mobile internet is a massive business now weve seen a real rise in the number of mobile followers on our Twitter and Facebook pages. Weve even had customers testing their new phones by tweeting to us!
"With the proliferation of mobile devices, more people are accessing the internet outside their homes and offices, whether on a mobile phone, netbook or even a gaming device," said David Staas senior vice president of marketing for JiWire.
He added that more than 890 million new internet enabled wireless devices are expected to ship this year alone according to Morgan Stanley, "revolutionising how people integrate media into their daily lives and changing the nature of advertising".
The increasing use of mobile internet phones could see the number rise further in future.
