As we all know, mobile is quickly becoming very important for online marketing. This chart shows the increasing number of devices that are avaliable, and the size of the circles represents the number of users expected through 2020. You can see that mobile internet is expected to be significantly more integrated than desktop internet.
This chart shows the adoption curve associated with the number of subscribers based on the first 20 quarters after launch. The red line is the growth of AOL, the yellow line is docomo and iMode in Japan, the blue line is the adoption rate of Netscape Navigator and the green line at the top is the growth rate of iPhone and iTouch. What you can see here is that the iPhone and iTouch has been adopted at a much faster rate than these other technologies. In my opinion this is partially because the internet predacessors set the path and created the desire to be online and the iPhone/iTouch and mobile internet as a whole gave people unlimited access to it.

People frequently access the mobile web at the same time as they are consuming other media. 21% said they consume mobile content while watching TV, 13% while listening to the radio, 12% while working on their desktop, 8% while emailing. Other tasks include using MMS, reading the newspaper, reading magazines, using an MP3, playing video games, instant messaging and playing PC video games.
