Mobile Data Illustrates Growing Opportunity for App Developers [Infographic]

Mobile growth is the hidden driver behind the increase of people online around the world. While wealthier countries are more connected that poorer countries, an infographic from Hot Bargain Phones illustrates the opportunity in a growing market.

For example, the emergence of China, India and Brazil as economic superpowers coincides with the increase in mobile users. In fact, these countries are among the top five smartphone markets, which also includes the U.S. and the U.K.

While in the U.S. Apple devices seem most popular, globally, Samsung is the most popular mobile provider and Android is the most popular mobile operating system. This is a clear indication that despite the temptation for developers to build apps for the iOS first, perhaps it’s time for developers to adopt an Android-first approach.
