Mobile (Phone) Internet Still Popular & Growing
By: MarkJ - 22 November, 2006 (9:12 AM)

The Mobile Data Association (MDA) has reported that more and more people are connecting to the Internet via their mobile phones:

The report claims that a staggering 14 million people connected to the internet via their mobile handset in September, up from 13 million in July.

This does not include people using Blackberry-type devices, as the figures exclude people accessing mobile intranets for business usage.

The MDA states in a press release that "mobile e-mail and mobile web are becoming more popular as they become easier to use, with improved download speeds and connectivity."

There always seems to be a curious divide between analysts, whom have long felt the mobile Internet to be a failure, and statistics that show otherwise. Either way, 3's forthcoming flat-rate service just got a boost. More @ Web-User.
