We are on the cusp of making great strides towards the promise of mobility. This isn't a site about me, but rather I wanted a place where people can come to learn and talk about how the promise is being realized.

UW Mobile Usage Stats.

Mobile Device Usage Up Sharply

Strictly by the Numberswifi_platforms.png

No matter how you look it, the data from our web and network logs is compelling and even a bit alarming.

Consider the following about our Wi-Fi network last month:

  • Total devices grew by more than 7%.
  • Smart Mobile devices (think iPhone, Windows Mobile, etc) increased by 16%.
  • 1 in 8 devices is a Smart Mobile device.
  • We’ve seen nearly 90,000 unique devices on Wi-Fi since October, 2007.
  • iPhone/iPod Touch use grew by over 22%.
  • 1 in 12 devices is an iPhone or iPod Touch.
  • Macs now account for 23% of Wi-Fi devices.

In any month these numbers would be extraordinary, but this was a summer month. A month when many students, faculty and staff are away. School starts again in a week, I wonder what the next couple of months will bring.

Let me know what you think.

In the mean time, I’ve updated the UW Mobile Usage Stats for your viewing pleasure.
