iPhone accounts for 43% of mobile web traffic

But Symbian remains most popular platform

Over 40 percent of mobile web traffic comes from Apple's iPhone users, says AdMob.

The mobile advertising firm's April 2009 AdMob Mobile Metrics Report also includes figures from Gartner that estimate iPhones made up eight percent of all smartphone sales in 2008.

Gartner's figures also show that Symbian handsets were the most popular, accounting for 52 percent of all smartphones sold. However, AdMob says Symbian users only account for 26 percent of mobile web traffic.

The report also revealed that smartphones running Google's open-source Android platform, such as the HTC's Dream and Magic, accounted for less than one percent of all smartphones sold but generated more that three percent of all mobile web traffic.

When it comes to HTML browsing from mobile phones, Apple's iPhone remained the most popular device, account for 65 percent of all traffic. It was closely followed by Android devices which generated nine percent of all traffic and in third place were handsets running the Symbian platform, which made up seven percent of all traffic.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
