+ - Mobile Internet to Overtake Desktop Usage by 2014->

Submitted by

GeezerTD writes "Microsoft Tag has just released a neat infographic highlighting statistics on how people are using mobile phones in 2011. The infographic shows that over 1 billion of the worlds 4+ billion mobile phones are now smartphones, and 3 billion are SMS enabled (weirdly, 950 million mobile phones still don’t have SMS capabilities). In 2014, mobile internet usage will overtake desktop internet usage and already in 2011, more than 50% of all “local” searches are done from a mobile device.
86% of mobile users are watching TV while using a mobile phone, 200+ million (1/3 of all users) access Facebook from a mobile device and 91% of all mobile internet use is “social” related."

The rush to convert every web page over to have direct mobile compatibility is growing, but from an honest perspective do you really think that these "predictions" are actually realistic?"
