Mobile browser usage more than doubles, according to Opera

Opera logoIn its "State of the Mobile Web" report, which analyzes aggregated information from Opera Mini's servers, browser company Opera Software today said that in June 2009, 26.5 million users viewed more than 10.4 billion pages. In annual performance, that represents a 143% increase in users and a 224% increase in pages viewed.

Now it's well known that Opera is one of the most widely ported browsers in the mobile device realm, with more than 40 million phones shipping with the software built in, but where is it being used the absolute most, and on what devices? The top ten countries in terms of usage in June were Russia, Indonesia, India, China, Ukraine, South Africa, United States, United Kingdom, Poland, and Nigeria.

Opera is most commonly used on Nokia and Sony Ericsson devices the world over, but the device most commonly used to access the Web with Opera Mini is the Nokia 6300, a 2G Series 40 handset which tops the Russian, Indonesian and Ukrainian charts. Only in the U.S. (BlackBerry Curve 8330), U.K. (LG Renoir), and South Africa (Samsung E350) do different brands beat Nokia and Sony Ericsson to the top of the rankings.

And what are Opera Mini users accessing on their Nokia phones? Google and Facebook of course, except in Indonesia, where users prefer Yahoo, and Russia and Ukraine where users prefer Yandex and Vkontakte.
