A few things to chew on:

– BlackBerries edged iPhone devices out of the top brands chart
– Canada edged the UK out of the top countries chart
– Nokia still rules the top phones chart 100% with the Nokia 3110 Classic holding on to its top spot. And that’s the top 5 phones taking a chunky 22.5% of mobile traffic here.

Don’t forget, this is all MobilityNigeria.com traffic only, but then these statistics may present some fair indicators about mobile web traffic in Nigeria in general.

    Good work Yomi. QWERTY devices seem to have stolen the show at one of the top points.

    I wish to assume the results are representative of the internet usage statistic in Nigeria. The top networks are quite a reveal. I thought Glo mobile would be second to MTN. The difference is immense.
