Mobile devices and tablet computers accounted for over 5% of all browsing on the internet and over 8.2% in the United States in June 2011 according to the latest global internet browsing numbers from NetMarketShare.
The share of internet browsing on these devices is more than double the 2% market share recorded in June 2010.
Worldwide, browsing on the desktop accounted for 94.6% of all web browsing in June, down from 97.7% in the same time period a year earlier.
In the U.S. the Apple iPhone and iPad accounted for 5% of all browsing. Android devices accounted for a 2.6% share while Blackberry came in at 0.57%. Symbian, Java ME and Windows Mobile devices collectively accounted for less than one-tenth of one percent.
On its own, the Apple iPad now exceeds 1% of all browsing on the internet, and over 2.1% in the United States.
Another study from comScore, released in June, found that the iPad accounts for 97% of all tablet traffic on the Web compared to just 0.6% for Android-based tablets.
