2013 Mobile Statistics, The Numbers Are In!

Mobile is important, our readers get it and so do we. But sometimes convincing your boss or the decision maker to invest in a mobile friendly website or mobile app can be almost as painful as pulling teeth or harder than explaining how to tie a shoe to a three year old. We have searched endlessly for some awesome mobile statistics in 2013 and have brought them to you. You simply can't argue with numbers and showing your boss this post might just help....enjoy!

1. There are over 1.2 billion people in the world accessing the web from a mobile device.

2. 2013 marked the first time in history that smartphones exceeded the number of exports and imports over dumbphones.

3.  Sources such as Internet Trends 2013 have stated that Global mobile traffic accounts for 15%.

4. 61% of people have a better opinion of brands when they offer a good mobile experience. (Source: Latitude)

5. Numerous sources state that almost half a billion tablets will ship in 2013 - 2014.

6.  25.85% of all emails are opened on mobile phones, and 10.16% are opened on tablets. (Source: Knotice)

Sure these stats are fun to read, but really how applicable are they? Also are users really using smartphones to access websites from their mobile phones or tablets?

The answer is Yes They Are! We actually asked one pizza shop client of ours to send over their Google Analtyics for mobile vs desktop overview. Check these numbers out.
