Mobile Device Usage Up Big in 2010

Opera’s November State of the Mobile Web report reflects on a year of growth for the mobile Internet, with users browsing an incredible 340 billion pages in the first 11 months of 2010. (Opera is a mobile web browser developer).

With more than 80 million users in November, the yearly trends reflect a user base spanning teenagers with smart phones in Western Europe to users of basic feature phones in developing countries.

And now NFPW is joining the trend. We have our own mobile website. In the next few weeks it will work so that if you type nfpw.org on your smart phone it will automatically know to go to the mobile site.

Why did we do this? Because those who are growing up with mobile are not going to take the time to go to a computer and then go to the NFPW website. This way we can keep our information visible to all members. Many companies have mobile sites, too. It’s still not clear how companies will be able to capitalize on mobile usage but they’ll have it figured out before long.

In the meantime, if you want to know more about mobile, here’s a link to the mobile trends for 2011.
