Earlier this week we learned that according to ComScore the iPad contributes more than 89 percent of tablet [web] traffic across all markets This shouldn’t be a surprise since the iPad also probably accounts for 89% or more of all tablets sold so far.
The Register discusses data from the Net Applications NetMarketShare Report provides a broader perspective. Mobile browsing accounts for 5% of all browsing worldwide. In the U.S. that figure is even higher: 8.2%. The iPad, at only 14 months old at the time the data was gathered, accounts for 1% of all browsing worldwide and 2.1% of all browsing in the U.S. Another way of looking at this is that the iPad accounts for 20% of all mobile browsing worldwide and 25% of all mobile browsing in the U.S.
If you combine the iPad web browsing marketshare with the iPhone, iOS devices account for 60.7% (or nearly two-thirds) of all mobile browsing in the U.S. Android accounted for 31.6%, BlackBerry 6.9% and everything else was less than 1% combined.
