Mobile Internet Adoption

If your team is considering developing mobile Internet application (e.g. a web application that's accessible via a browser on a mobile phone), keep in mind that a small percentage of people currently use the mobile Internet:
A study by Media-Screen has found that only 5% of people with broadband connections in the United States, approximately five million people, use the mobile Internet, despite 60% of them having a mobile internet device.

The report also found that mobile internet remains unpopular due to cost and connectivity issues including coverage.
Use of the mobile Internet seems bound to increase, however.
