New stats released by Pew Research reveal that, “17% of cell phone owners do most of their online browsing on their phone, rather than a computer or other device.”
These stats only point further towards the internet’s continued companionship with mobile access. More people are not just using the web on their phone, they are using it exclusively on their phone. What’s more, these statistics are backed up by the reasoning of these mobile users. The majority of these users say the mobile web works for them because it is more convenient. In fact, 38% of users cite convenience as the biggest draw of the mobile web. And 23% say they use phones because they are omnipresent.
