The use of mobile devices to access the internet is growing by leaps and bounds. What lies behind this surge? afaqs! explores.
Some revolutions take place quickly and silently. Take the case of the mobile web – accessing content such as websites, applications, videos and games through internet-connected mobile devices like web-capable mobile handsets or tablet computers. In just one year, the number of active mobile internet users (those who access the internet on mobile devices at least once a week) in India has jumped from 8 million to 25 million, as per an industry estimate.
It is not just about the number of users. Page views too have grown significantly. According to Opera Software (owner of the popular mobile browser, Opera Mobile) the total number of page-views went up by 337 per cent (on Opera Mobile) in the last 12 months, in India.
