A few high level stats that really show how much mobile has shaped 2010 for my websites. The following data is from one of the automated reports I run using the google analytics api. Firstly here is the weekly visits by OS, # growth year on year and % growth year on year.
As you can see iPhone has grown at >200% and android at almost 1000%. What is really interesting is that together they equate to 15% of the total windows desktop visits in that same period. Even though my cocktail site is not designed for mobile, it is now, rapidly, becoming a mobile site. One other interesting point to notice is how large the iPad already is, 1/3 of android from absolutely nowhere.
A second interesting data set is screen resolution:
Once again the super interesting data point is that teeney tiny screens (e.g. 320x480) are growing at 1000%s year on year whereas the classic desktop resolutions are growing far slower.
I am seeing this across both paperairplanes.co.uk and cocktailmaking.co.uk. It is super interesting to see that all the predictions of the year of mobile coming have finally come true. It’s supported in the data not just the hype on the street.
