New tracker tool reveals Apple's iOS dominates mobile traffic

Real-time Mobile Dominance Tracker shows majority of US mobile traffic originates from iOS devices

A new Android vs iOS real-time tracker shows that Apple's mobile operating system is dominating mobile traffic in the US.

Chitika Insights explains that its Mobile Dominance Tracker "performs an analysis of the unique impressions seen originating from mobile devices within the Chitika Ad Network". The Chitika Ad Network places billions of ads across 200,000 websites.

This data is then displayed in two visual graphs. Chitika's rolling 24 hour pie chart shows that on 24 April, over 69 per cent of the mobile traffic recorded originated from an iOS device with 26.6 per cent coming from Android devices and under five per cent from other mobile operating systems.

Chitika's second graph shows the US mobile traffic share by hour, which, when we checked at midday on 24 April, showed that over 73 per cent of the total mobile traffic recorded by Chitika at 3am originated from iOS devices, with the iPad contributing to this traffic the most.

Apple is expected to report a successful quarter for the iPad in its earnings call later today.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
