Nearly half of new web users are mobile-only

Tuesday 1 May 2012 | 09:24 CET | News
In some countries, roughly half of new web users are mobile-only. They have never used a regular computer to connect to the internet, according to a white paper published by Opera Software. Globally, 56 percent of Opera users access the internet only via their mobile versus 43 percent of non-Opera users. The report further shows that users of Opera browsers are 35 percent more likely to purchase music via their mobile devices than those who do not use Opera and 29 percent more likely to purchase games. In most countries, Opera users are younger and have completed more years of study. More than 168 million unique users were registered on the Opera Mini platform during March, viewing more than 117 billion webpages in the same period.
