  • Multiple interpretations. Technically speaking, just about any device could be mobile – especially laptops. However, for our purposes, we are defining “mobile learning” as learning via a device you use on the go, while you are mobile. It usually means learning via a device you can hold in one hand. iPhone, Laptop, iPadOur focus: handheldOur definition -- mLearning: Something you use when you are mobile. Handheld.
  • pocketable devices
  • Mobile phones are not a learning tool.   Mobile users (76%) are much less likely than all users (92%) to go online to learn.  Learning requires time and patience, something mobile phone users are in short supply of.  They (64%) are 1.5 times less likely than the traditional user (96%) to go online to educate themselvesThey (64%) are 1.4 times less likely than the traditional user (94%) to go online to research.They (95%) are more likely than the traditional user (86%) to go online to keep informed.
  • Mobile phones are a social connector.  91% of mobile users go online to socialize, compared to only 79% of traditional users.  They are using their mobile phones "at the moment" to connect with others.  The top socialize intents are:Instant message – 62%Forward e-mails (58%), content (40%) and photos (38%)Post comments on social networking sites – 45%Connect to people on social networking sites – 43%
  • Intent of Mobile Phone Users Differ by Gender and AgeMen look at prices but women buy.  When shopping, men are more likely than women to compare prices (47% vs. 30%), but women are more likely to purchase (40% vs. 30%).Women express themselves while men do business.  Women are much more likely than men to personally express themselves (49% vs. 35%) but men are much more likely to do business (62% vs. 57%).Men want to get away.  Men (79%) are much more likely than women (61%) to use their mobile phone to simply "escape."Women want to make others laugh.  Many more women (70%) than men (58%) go online using their mobile devices to entertain others.Youth are the target for retailers. Youth (44%) are more likely to shop over their mobile phones than the average mobile user (35%).Seniors want to learn. Seniors (82%) are much more likely than the traditional user (64%) to use their mobile phones to educate themselves.PRNewswire.com, New Study Shows ‘Intent’ Behind Mobile Internet Use - http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/new-study-shows-intent-behind-mobile-internet-use-84016487.html
  • http://mobithinking.com/mobile-marketing-tools/latest-mobile-stats#gartner-predicts1) Mobile subscribers will surpass 5 billion in 2010 (that's over 70 percent of the world population) and growing rapidly, led by China and India.* What other medium offers that reach?2) Half a billion people accessed mobile Internet worldwide in 2009. Usage will double within five years as mobile overtakes the PC as the most popular way to get on the Web.* But with 233 million mobile Web users in China alone, is this estimate conservative?3) By 2011, over 85 percent of new handsets will be able to access the mobile Web.* Please note that this does not mean smartphones – you do not need a smartphone to access the mobile Web (but it does make for a richer experience).4) The number of 3G handsets is growing fast. 3G means faster access the mobile Web (assuming a 3G network is available).* While very high 3G handset penetration helps to keep Japan at the pinnacle of mobile Web, very low 3G penetration in China hasn't stopped rapid growth.5) Mobile devices sales fell slightly in 2009, while smartphone sales showed strong growth albeit from a small base.* Beware: there is a lot of misinformation about the market share of smartphones and some handsets in particular. This doesn't matter if your mobile strategy targets all phone users equally, but if you are prioritizing one handset, you must know the facts.6) Estimates for expenditure on mobile advertising and marketing worldwide ranged from US$1.4 billion to $7.5 billion in 2009, all analysts forecast rapid growth. But with annual mobile advertising expenditure of US$1.14 billion in Japan alone, are these estimates conservative or is Japan still light years ahead of the rest of the world?7) How will consumers use their mobiles? The key drivers for mobile usage are expected to be (in order of importance) money transfer; location-based services; mobile search; mobile browsing; mobile health monitoring; mobile payment; near-field-communication services; mobile advertising; instant messaging; and mobile music.8) The top five mobile network operators worldwide that derive more of their revenue from data than other operators are all Asian: Smart Philippines, Globe Philippines, SoftBank Japan, NTT DOCOMO Japan, KDDI Japan. Also four of the top five MNOs for monthly churn (loyalty) are also Asian. Also includes top five for subscribers, revenues, monthly average revenue per user (ARPU).
