Facebook Jumps to third most visited site on mobile web [India Mobile Report]

Opera has published its State of Mobile Internet report for the month of December 2009 (link) and the top visited sites from India are:

  1. google.com
  2. orkut.com
  3. facebook.com
  4. wikipedia.org
  5. yahoo.com 
  6. youtube.com
  7. songs.pk
  8. zedge.net
  9. cricinfo.com (new)
  10. wap.in

And interestingly, all the top handsets belong to Nokia, topped by Nokia 5130 XpressMusic, followed by Nokia 2700c and N70.

Moreover, it’s important to note that Gmail fell off the top 10 list (and is that because of the pop/new nokia phones are better integrated with gmail pop features)?
