Smartphone usage and mobile attitudes - 2011


Published on

And finally good data have come!
Google, Ipsos & MMA have made an effort to get insights about mobile user and its mobile usage. The site provides a full immersion on data that can be used to drive decisions on how to engage with consumers.
It’s the first time that such an extensive study is available for free and we should take advantage of this data field.
The site gives the opportunity to use a tool to create custom charts and to retrieve raw data, so I spent a little time to enjoyed the opportunity to make available some charts that I hope will be useful and explanatory on the consumer's behaviours.

I believe in the diversity of people who share their knowledge and their different culture and I hope you found useful this presentation and that you will share it . I was tempted to use a “ Pay with a tweet ” service but I prefer to let decide by yourself . So, it’s your own decision to share knowledge  As I often deal with data, I try to organize them in an easy way to be usable by people, but moreover I analyze them to finding new solutions within my consulting activities. I appreciate people who, like me, think out of the box and with whom it is possible to share thoughts picturing new paths . This is just something about me but not all, feel free to contact me for any question or proposal or just to connect me via LinkedIn.
