iPhone accounts for 43% of mobile web traffic

But Symbian remains most popular platform

Over 40 percent of mobile web traffic comes from Apple's iPhone users, says AdMob.

The mobile advertising firm's April 2009 AdMob Mobile Metrics Report also includes figures from Gartner that estimate iPhones made up eight percent of all smartphone sales in 2008.

Gartner's figures also show that Symbian handsets were the most popular, accounting for 52 percent of all smartphones sold. However, AdMob says Symbian users only account for 26 percent of mobile web traffic.

The report also revealed that smartphones running Google's open-source Android platform, such as the HTC's Dream and Magic, accounted for less than one percent of all smartphones sold but generated more that three percent of all mobile web traffic.

When it comes to HTML browsing from mobile phones, Apple's iPhone remained the most popular device, account for 65 percent of all traffic. It was closely followed by Android devices which generated nine percent of all traffic and in third place were handsets running the Symbian platform, which made up seven percent of all traffic.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
