Report: iPhone and iPad dominate German mobile data traffic

Apple iPhone and iPad are proving so popular that users of these devices are generating over 80 per cent of all mobile data traffic in Germany.

A second-quarter study conducted by WebTrekk found that iPhone iOS 4 users now accounted for almost half (45.5 per cent) of all mobile data access. Additionally, the study found iPad owners making strong inroads by growing their share of mobile data traffic to over 28 per cent, up 3.5 per cent on the first quarter of 2011.

WebTrekk also reports that Android data traffic broke through the 10 per cent level for the first time in Germany, seemingly at the expense of Nokia's Symbian OS, which saw its share of data traffic fall to 2.6 per cent during the second quarter.

Of further concern to Nokia, WebTrekk claims that data usage of Microsoft's Windows Mobile 7 operating system barely registers in the German market, recording 0.52 per cent of the country's traffic.
