This year we have really seen mobile technology take off. To contextualize just how significant mobile has been in 2010, Mobile Future created this short video.
The video highlights a number of trends and benchmarks that occurred in the mobile world over the last year. Some of the most interesting include the fact that 5 billion apps were downloaded in 2010, up from 300 million in 2009 and that location-based service Foursquare jumped from 5 million Foursquare users, up from 200,000 in 2009. 2010 also saw a 347% increase in Twitter mobile usage and 200 million mobile Facebook users.
With unprecedented growth this year, it will be fascinating to see how the mobile sector continues to grow in the next few years.
