Mobile Internet users do not visit nearly the same number of individual sites as Internet users do over the PC (average of over 100 domains per month). By contrast, the average mobile Internet user in the US visited 6.4 individual websites per month in Q1 2008. This is slightly higher than with UK mobile users (5.5 per month) and German users (4.4 per month).

Typically cheaper and more flexible Mobile Broadband services are helping to improve the growth of mobile web usage, although handsets continue to suffer from some common shortcomings’. 38% say that improved battery life is the single most important enhancement for their mobile device. This is followed by larger screen sizes (22%), more memory capacity (21%) and better data inputs (20%).
