iPhone Top Handset, But LG Top Brand
The data is for mobile phones in use from January to October 2009. The sheer quantity of handsets available for users leads to what is obviously very fragmented market share. The top 10 phones account for just over 20 percent of the total devices in use.
The Nielsen data also ranks the top sites visited by mobile devices. In that category, the top 3 sites are Google Search (no!), Yahoo! Mail, and Gmail.
What are the top brands visited by mobile devices? They are (surprisingly) Yahoo!, Google, and MSN / Windows Live / Bing.
Also ranked were the top video "channels" visited by mobile devices. At the top of the list is YouTube (naturally), with Fox Interactive Media and the Weather Channel (really!) next. One might wonder what might happen if Hulu could roll out its iPhone app.
