Top sites visited by smartphone users – no prizes for guessing number one

Mobile phones, PDAs

I spend more time on my smartphone than my PC these days – and I’m sure I am not alone with data tariffs falling all the time. But where do smartphone users hang out? Well, pretty much in the same places as desktop users it seems.

According to the M:Metrics April Rankings for the United States and United Kingdom, Google tops the list for both UK and US users, with Microsoft, eBay and Yahoo also making the list for both sides of the Atlantic. But there are some differences. Google has over 60 per cent of users in the US, dwarfing all other destinations. But in the UK, it’s got just 30 per cent, with the likes of the BBC and the major mobile service operators muscling in on the action.

For the full breakdown, see over.
