2017 has been a busy year for DeviceAtlas - new product, new patents, new website, and an award at MWC! We look back at another exciting year charting the ever-changing device landscape. From a product perspective we launched our DeviceAtlas for Apps product at MWC 2017. We've had continued progress on the technology front with an award for innovation at MWC and the granting of another seminal device detection patent, this time from the EU patent office building on last year's US patent, demonstrating our IP leadership in the area of device detection. This year web performance continued to be a big theme in the industry, and we saw a range of developments, both progressive (AMP, PWA) and regressive (the death of Windows Mobile and demise of Blackberry). Video has moved closer to the center of the mobile advertising stage.
As the massive growth in mobile and connected devices continues, our latest research focuses on selected smartphone hardware characteristics, including chipset names, chipset vendors, GPUs, RAM, and the number of SIM slots. Check out our latest infographic which breaks down this data and gives you a better understanding of the mobile market today.
Here are the most recent device usage statistics to help you better understand which smartphone screen resolutions are the most popular in 2017.
One of the device properties detected by DeviceAtlas is whether a device can support multiple SIM cards, which allows us to look specifically at dual SIM devices. We looked into web traffic statistics to learn in which regions multiple SIM cards are the most popular.
Most flagship smartphone series get updated every year but does it actually mean we replace our devices once every 12 months? To answer this question we looked into DeviceAtlas statistics focusing on the most common year of release for mobile devices in selected corners of the globe.
With users’ online buying behavior becoming increasingly complex and non-linear there is ever more sensitivity to web performance. Use our brand new ROI tool which will help you calculate your company's revenue uplift from implementing server-side device detection.
Looking to better understand which Android smartphones are the most popular around the globe in 2017? We have some exciting statistics based on web traffic data to hundreds of thousands of partner websites using DeviceAtlas for optimization and analytics.
The rise of the mobile internet is changing the way consumers interact with online services. According to Cisco, by 2020, there will be 5.5 billion mobile users, representing 70 percent of the global population. More than half a billion (563 million) mobile devices and connections were added just last year. We have grown into a global society that expects to conduct research, shop online, and stream music or videos at any time, in any place on any device―which creates both opportunities and challenges for companies.
