A few days ago, we saw some numbers from AdMob about mobile Web traffic which showed the iPhone way in the lead. But, there's some new talk buzzing around about BlackBerry which may cause its numbers to increase.
According to recent traffic figures from clicksharing community Compete, yes.Despite no firm release date, no news in two months and a flurry of headlines about Apple's iPhone, RIM's BlackBerry and various Google Android devices, the Palm Pre is still on consumers' minds, according to Compete.
Some interesting mobile Web traffic numbers were released today from AdMob Mobile Metrics that put the Apple iPhone way ahead of the other smartphones. How far, you ask?
AdMob released their February 2009 report (PDF link) that gathers data from ads on more than 6,000 mobile web sites and 1,000 applications around the world. This data does not show sales information, which is tough to really understand because of the way companies count sales and the way data analysis companies count smartphones. Looking at the US smartphone figures, Apple has the lions share of traffic 50% in Febuary 2009 with RIM in second with 21%, Windows Mobile in third with 13%, Palm in fourth with 7% and Android in fifth with 5%.

After a couple of weeks, I gave in and picked up an iPhone 3G at the Apple store just over a week ago to personally give it a try. It is a good device, but the only two improvements over my original iPhone are the 3G support and GPS. The 3G has been very spotty, especially compared to the solid reception I am seeing on the Nokia E71-2, N95-3, and HTC Advantage. GPS is nice and I have actually used it twice to help me quickly navigate around traffic jams and in an unfamiliar area. However, the device has almost ended up going airborne across the room because of the constant instability with both 3rd party and native applications so I am strongly considering a return of the device this next week.
The Information Anywhere suite connects mobile clients to email systems using standards, but not IMAP, which many email administrators shun do to potential unfettered exposure of email traffic to the Internet. Those using the Sybase solution for making the iPhone a corporate email client will be able to use their mobile networks to securely synchronize and replicate their emails, said Krishnapillai.
Even though I have the iPhone and other smartphones in hand, I keep going back to the Nokia N95 and usually have it in my bag if not in my hand. I like the availability of 3rd party applications and was very pleased to read on Symbian Guru that there is finally a stand-alone Google Maps application for Nokia S60 devices. You simply visit www.google.com/gmm on your S60 device. Palm and Windows Mobile users have had this for a while and S60 owners have had a very functional Java client available, that has actually provided critical directions to me a couple of times. The best benefit with this new stand-alone application is that the integrated GPS receiver on the Nokia N95 is now supported. I also found performance to be much snappier with this application than with the Java client and imagine I'll be using it more since it has traffic update support too.
