If you’re like me you think that surfing the web on your phone is like surfign the web ala 1996. Its slow to download and the pages have no detail and not a lot of room for text or images. Its an ultra simple interface awithout a lot of usefulness yet.
Somehow though there are people out there surfing the net for things over their mobile phones. What they are doing with them I don’t know. but here’s a break down of what phones they are suing to access the internet. My guess thatthe palm Treo is in the “other” category.
Quoted From comScore MMX:
