According to the report the iPhone controls over 66% of mobile web usage, which turns out to be over nine time more than its closest competitor, WindowsMobile, which is reported to handle just 6.91% of mobile traffic. Google's Android and Symbian were tied close behind Microsoft at 6.15 percent, while Research In Motion's BlackBerry OS trailed behind all, including Palm OS devices, at 2.24 percent.
The Net Applications report backs up data presented by AdMob which stated that the iPhone commanded more than half of the smartphone traffic in the U.S. and a third of that worldwide. It also presents a strong case for competition from Android, which gained control in four months, the same amount of mobile web usage that Symbian took to garner in years.
This news (and rumors of the release of revised desktop machines) may bring some relief to Apple afficianados concerned with the company's recent drop in share prices.
