The mobile revolution is truly here; by the end of 2012 the number of mobile-connected devices will exceed the number of people on earth. The revolution brings with it a new generation of mobile only internet users, who only access the internet through web enabled mobile devices.

This is especially true in developing markets where computers and laptops are not easily accessible. For these markets the mobile device is much more than just a phone, it connects the previously unconnected on a mass scale both in cities and in rural areas. Mobile gives them access to the world’s information and provides businesses with previously untapped consumers. A key market is China, where our research has found the growth of the mobile only internet generation has increased 8 percentage points (ppts) in a year.

This report looks at the mobile only by country, with an in-depth look at China. It also looks at the reasons why people are mobile only and the differences by cities and rural areas - we found those in rural areas in China are 16ppt more likely to be mobile only, compared to those in a city. All the research data was captured by surveys undertaken directly on the mobile internet.

    • Mobile Only Internet Generation & China The mobile revolution is truly here; by the end of 2012 the number of mobile-connected devices will exceed the number of people on earth. The revolution brings with it a new generation of mobile only internet users, who only access the internet through web enabled mobile devices. This is especially true in developing markets where computers and laptops are not easily accessible. For these markets the mobile device is much more than just a phone, it connects the previously unconnected on a mass scale both in cities and in rural areas. Mobile gives them access to the world’s information and provides businesses with previously untapped consumers. A key market is China, where our research has found the growth of the mobile only internet generation has increased 8 percentage points (ppts) in a year. This report looks at the mobile only by country, with an in-depth look at China. It also looks at the reasons why people are mobile only and the differences by cities and rural areas - we found those in rural areas in China are 16ppt more likely to be mobile only, compared to those in a city.
