Mobile Internet usage figures in the United States differed slightly with email still at the top of the list. In 2010 email took up more than 40 percent of U.S. users' mobile Internet time. Social network usage is increasing in leaps and bounds in the mobile sector too, with a 28 percent rise year-on-year.
Consumers in the US are using their mobile devices more frequently than they were last year to watch videos and listen to music online. Sports and news consumption, on the other hand, have both dropped off by around 20 percent since June 2009.
"Although we see similar characteristics amongst pc and mobile Internet use, the way their activity is allocated is still pretty contrasting," revealed Martin.
"While convergence will continue, the unique characteristics of computers and mobiles, both in their features and when and where they are used mean that mobile Internet behavior mirroring its PC counterpart is still some way off."
