Opera Jan 2011: Wikipedia Rises, Mobile2day Emerges, GetJar & Zedge Decline

Opera Software, which positions India as the third largest market for its Opera Mini mobile browser, has indicated a comparative decline in mobile usage for mobile application store getjar and user generated content aggregator, Zedge.net. While Getjar has slipped four positions down to the number nine spot, Zedge is down one position down, at number seven during the month of January. Mobile2day.com, which is an app store is a new entrant at number eight. Orkut continues to be at number four, behind Google (consistently number one), Facebook and YouTube. Wikipedia has been the highest gainer, up three positions from last time, while usage of Yahoo has also increased.

Opera’s State of the Mobile web report for January 2011, suggests that in terms of unique users it has seen a year on year increase of  267.3% from India, a 371.6% increase in page views, and page views per user stands at 441. In addition to that, data transfer has seen a rise of 321.5% since last year and users consumed 7MB of data per month on an average.

Among handsets, Nokia 2690 is the most preferred device for  Opera Mini users in India, while Nokia X2 has moved up five places since December 2010.

Download Opera’s State of the Mobile Web report for January 2011 here.

Note: Please keep in mind that, despite being called ‘State of the Mobile Web’, it is likely that it is not. The data is indicative of data consumption on the Opera Software browsers on the mobile, and not other modes of access, of which applications and default handset browsers are a key component. Also, growth may not be indicated of larger market trends since a growth could be on account of more handsets that have the Opera Mini browser installed.
