Or, at least, 90 percent of Americans 13 years or older or 230 million consumers do according to a recent study! In the 18-29 age group it’s 96 percent. Also, older wireless phone devices are being replaced with smartphones, and it’s projected that 50-plus percent of mobile phones will be smartphones by the end of 2011.
Does this mean the end of the Internet? I doubt it. Only 38 percent of mobile phone owners browse the Internet, use apps or download content and although smartphone users account for 50% of that usage, that still wouldn’t create the critical mass necessary to take all of the action “on the road.”
