Mobile Web will soar past 1.7 billion in five years’ time

Metro UK has a great article about the future of the mobile web:

“According to a new report from Juniper Research, the increasing popularity of social networking sites, instant messaging and user-generated content will see the current figure of 577 million worldwide users triple by 2013.

The research suggests that the fall of so-called ‘walled gardens’ of content controlled by the network operators will lead to increased take-up of what they call mobile web 2.0.

“The mobile web 2.0 market is still nascent and business models remain in a state of flux, so there is still time for players to establish fruitful partnerships that build on their strengths and are reciprocally beneficial. The window of opportunity, however, is closing,” said Ian Chard, Juniper Research Analyst and author of the report.”
