Report: Features Phone Users Visit Socionets, Android: Education, Windows Phone: Communication/Email Sites

Opera has released its latest “State of Mobile Web” report that offers a few interesting insights on platforms vs the intent:

  • Android users are more likely than users of other platforms to visit education sites.
  • Windows Phone users are more likely to visit email and communications sites, compared to users of other platforms.
  • Feature phone users are far and away the most likely to visit social-network and community sites on their handsets, with Android users being the least likely.
  • BlackBerry (RIM) users are more likely than anyone else to visit computer and sports sites.
  • Android users are the most likely to view “Music, video and media” sites whereas iPhone users are least likely to view sites in that category.
  • Across all platforms, the top 2 categories (other than “Unclassified”) are: “Social networks & community” and “News & information”.mobile_internet_usage

I find it very difficult to digest that iPhone users consume less of media than Android (i.e. “Music, video and media” sites) – maybe, most of these iPhone users aren’t using Opera browser (so do keep this in mind, while reading the report).
