On the Move with the Mobile Web: Libraries and Mobile Technologies KEY TERMS  Smartphone: a cell phone with computing capabilities  Mobile Web: the World Wide Web accessed through a mobile device INTERESTING FACTS  50% of the world’s population, 3.3 billion people, have mobile phone subscriptions.  84% of U.S. residents have mobile phones, but a limited number of people use them to browse the internet.  For those that do browse the internet…a whopping 74% of Generation Y , 51% of Gen X, and 35% of Young Boomers use their phones for sending or receiving text- messages (Forrester’s North American Technographics Benchmark Survey 2007), which has huge implications for library mobile functions.
