iPhone owns nearly 67% of mobile browsing market.

The latest  suggest that the iPhone OS still dominates mobile Web browsing. Even though the iPhone lost some ground in February as compared to January, it still dominates with close to 67%.

According to research by Net Applications, the iPhone's Mobile Safari is used 66.61% of the time by people browsing the Web with their cell/mobile phone. A very distant second place was taken by JavaME with a 9.06% share. Followed by a close rival, Windows Mobile sitting at 6.91%. A tied 4th/5th place was taken up by Symbian and Android.

The iPhone sold 13.4 million units for 2008 alone and  Windows Mobile sold 20 million handsets in 2008. That's 33% fewer units. The question that needs to be asked, is, how can the iPhone, which has sold fewer units, dominate the mobile browser market with a massive 66.61%? Well the simple answer is that the ratio of people using their mobile phones to browse the net is greater for the iPhone.

It seems that browsing the web is much better with the iPhone than it is with Windows Mobile.  It seems that a few sites do not work well with Windows mobile. It's not really how many sites work well with Windows Mobile, but which sites do not work well with Windows Mobile. Sites like Facebook, and Twitter, do not seem to work as well as they should when using a Windows Mobile device. Now when you consider that Facebook has over 175 000 000 users, we can surely see that it is an important site as far as traffic and usage goes.

Most Social Networking sites are frequented by the yuppies of today, those yuppies seem to prefer browsing those sites with the iPhone instead. It's no wonder the iPhone has a bigger share of the Mobile Browser Market.

Do you have a iPhone or a Windows Mobile phone? Do you browse the web with it? What's your experience?
