    • By the end of 2010:
    • # of mobile devices are predicted to “Eclipse the PC”
    • # of mobile Web users will cross the 1B mark
    • # of PC users will be ~1.3 billion
    • Annual growth rate of mobile devices will be 2.5 times that of the PC
    • Fueling this growth, 200M more smart phones are expected to hit the market
    • iPhone will support 300,000+ Apps vs. 100,000 today
    • Android will support up to 75,000 vs. 10,000 today

        • The US subscription penetration is approximately 90%
  • Mobile Operator Challenges on the Path to 4G
    • The path to 4G heralds hyper-convergence of communications, Internet, media, mobility and machine.
    • Revenue per bit is decreasing over time.
    • Traffic volumes are no longer proportional to the value the end user receives while using an application.
    • Mobile operators need to rationalize traffic volumes and network cost.
    • Operators must substantially reduce infrastructure cost or see margins disappear.
    • Current market strategies are driven by competition and are not addressing market demand.
    • Developed countries have very high wireless subscriber penetration. The US wireless subscription penetration for example is approximately 90%
    • Ecosystems are evolving to empower the end users and disrupt status quo.

  • Mobile Operator Traffic is Going Off Portal
    • Operator on-deck portals are not dead and their demise has been somewhat exaggerated.
    • Orange U.K. had 3.25M active monthly users of its Orange World portal in Feb 2009. generating 176M page impressions.
    • A recent GSMA study revealed that 68% of U.K. MI users visit operator portals.
    • However, there is a clear trend for mobile traffic going off portal (via the Mobile Web)
    • TeliaSonera is achieving strong growth in use of its off-portal service SurfOpen. In Sweden this has become by far the most popular site being accessed via the company’s own MI portal SurfPort, which is generating twice as many visitors as their traditionally popular ringtone services.
    • Vodafone U.K. is seeing off-portal social networking drive MI traffic. In April 2009 they revealed that its most visited MI sites were Facebook, Google, BBC, YouTube, Windows Live, Bebo and eBay. The most frequent Google searches were for Facebook, Bebo, eBay, Hotmail, YouTube, Yahoo!, MSN, Google, Flirtomatic and BBC.
    • Opera reinforces the global social networking trend. Their analysis shows that social networking sites account for almost 40% of all MI traffic.
    • According to Opera, only 23%of MI sites visited by customers WAP or dotMobi sites.
    • BOTTOM LINE: Most MI users will expect access to the same Web content on their mobile and non mobile computing devices—even if the former is an optimized or adapted version. As a result, consumers want the real deal, and they’ll get it. In Google’s words, the Web has won.
