2013 mobile facts for my fellow Warriors...
Share on: 
fb share twitter share gplus share more share

Happy New Year, Warriors! Here are a few mobile facts that I received via email this morning. I thought I'd pass them along and share to help any mobile Warriors with your marketing efforts....


  • According to Nielsen, 30 million consumers watch television content via their mobile phones. Makes me wonder why I invested so much in my big-screen HD television at home.
  • Gartner says that by 2013, mobile phones will overtake PCs as the most common Web access device worldwide. Which is a reminder for all those web designers to brush up on their mobile skills if they want to stay in business.
  • Exact Target reports that 16% of smartphone users report that they have made a purchase as a result of a marketing message they received on their phone. 55% purchased as a result of an email they received on their mobile device. Turns out email isn't dead after all.
  • Nielsen also said that in Q3 2011, teens increased their mobile data consumption by 256% over the prior year. I hope their parents had them on unlimited data plans.
  • Inneractive found that there is a direct correlation between the size of a mobile device's screen and the click-through rate (CTR) the device yields for mobile advertising. For instance, the iPhone yields a 4.35% CTR with a 3.5" screen, compared to a 6.61% CTR on the iPad's 9.7" screen.

Thx for sharing. Where did you get this kind of infos? I want to cite the infos in my Essey. LoL, About the higher CTR on the iPad, I think is the iPad user is richer and they use iPad instead of PC to finish the buying behavior. But iphone users just use them to play. Thanks a lot.

Here's another cool stat:

According to Forbes, over the past quarter, of the mobile devices sold, 64.1% are powered by Google’s Android™ and only 18.8% are operated by Apple’s iOS, see original article here.

That's a quite a shift in market focus towards Android although some may think its just a seasonal blip which is hard to believe as this is based on stats from Gartners Q2 2012 mobile sales unit report, the trend (whichever data you use) is definitely towards Android (not surprising).

Just finished this free iPhone App Marketing guide with access to over 100 app source code (open source) approved by the AppStore which you can download here and I'm doubling down on the Android course because the tide is turning!

Great stats, thanks for sharing. I also love the Google Mobile Playbook for stats - The Mobile Playbook

Gives us great ammunition for that social proof to educate (and sell) mobile to local bizzes.

If there is one industry that is continuously growing and developing at a huge speed, it’s none other than the mobile industry. For instance, Apple sold its first iPhone around June, 2007 and in 2012, the number of iPhone sold globally stands at around 250 million (data contributed by Strategy Analytics) . While the astounding growth pace of the mobile industry seems exciting, it also poses multiple challenges in the market.

To keep pace with the rising demand, businesses and service providers in the industry will need to focus on the approach of improving the network speed, reliability, and intelligence. Moreover, in evidence of the iPhone statistics, it can be clearly said that the connected devices is all set to continue as a growing trend throughout 2013, as well. According to Ericsson, over 50 million devices will enjoy a connection with the web by 2020.
