Opera SMW Dec 2012 India Data: Nokia, Google Top; Users Up 33% YoY, Pageviews up 44.8%

Browser co Opera Software has reported that Nokia still remains the top used mobile brand in India, and that Opera Mini users in India use their mobiles largely to use social networking sites, read news, download customized wallpapers and ringtones.

More than 208 million users (globally) surfed with Opera Mini in December, which, when combined with the Opera Mobile numbers, brings the total number of Opera mobile users to 229 million. Opera hasn’t disclosed such data separately for India, but they did share additional information on India with MediaNama:

Users are up 33% from December 2011 to December 2012.
– Monthly users increased by 6.8% from November 2012 to December 2012.
– Page views too are up by 44.8% from December 2011 to December 2012.
– Monthly page views increased from November 2012 to December 2012 by 12.5%.
– Monthly compressed data (by Opera users, since Opera compresses data in order to reduce data usage for accessing the mobile web) increased from November 2012 to December 12 by  12.6%.

Top domains accessed from Opera Mini in India:


Surprisingly, Getjar, the mobile app store, is no longer among the top domains accessed from Opera Mini. This is perhaps an indication that users have started to shift to Android based low end and mid range smartphones. In an interaction with MediaNama, Pushkar Chitale (DGM – Product & Developer Community at Mauj), had informed that the number of java game downloads had dropped for their app store Mobango.

Top 10 devices:
Samsung GT-S5360

Nokia continues to remain the top brand for low end and feature phones for consumers as iterated in the Cyber Media Research report. It should be noted that this data is reflective of Opera Mini users, which remains a top browser in low and mid range mobile devices.
