The situation worldwide, by region

It???s important to note that these numbers are averages. Individual countries can and do differ greatly, as you???ll see further down.

Mobile web usage per region worldwide

It is a bit ironic that mobile web usage is, relatively speaking, lower in Europe and North America than in much of Asia and Africa. At least when you consider all the attention that Android, iPhone, and smartphones in general are getting over here.

Worldwide, mobile makes up 3.81% of web usage according to StatCounter.

And just to clarify, with the mobile Web we mean the Web accessed from mobile devices (usually phones). The numbers in this article are for the month of October, 2010, and all come from StatCounter, based on visitor statistics from more than three million websites.
