This report discusses significant trends and initiatives in usage and applications of mobile internet during 2008, and what development can be expected in the coming years. These are exciting times: the mobile web is coming of age, patterns and preferences in user behaviours and preferences are emerging and it is possible to start discerning market trends and with greater detail predict coming development.The number of PCs in use worldwide has surpassed 1 billion and there are one and a half billion internet users globally. At the same time there are more than 4 billion mobile subscribers, indicating the vast growth potential for mobile internet, especially considering that 58 percent of the world’s installed PCs are in markets that account for only 15 percent of the world’s population, meaning that for a majority of the potential users the handset is their main internet terminal.

The global migration to 3G is also picking up pace and the base of WCDMA 3G subscribers more than doubled during both 2006 and 2007. By June 2008 there were more than 235 million WCDMA subscribers, representing a 6.4 percent penetration looking at all mobile subscribers worldwide, and 11 percent if only considering WCDMA markets. Furthermore the number of EVDO subscribers was about 100 million in mid-2008.
