U.S. mobile Internet usage grows threefold

According to a recent report from Bango, mobile Internet usage in the U.S. has increased threefold since last year. That puts the U.S. in second place behind the U.K. on the leader board of mobile Internet usage. The data only takes into account users that have used the Bango platform, but the top five countries accessing the mobile Internet in April 2007 are: the U.K. with 27 percent, the U.S. with 21 percent, South Africa with 11 percent, India with 9 percent and Indonesia with 3 percent. The Sanyo Katana SCP 6600 was the most popular handset for mobile Internet surfing, Bango said.
