My take on the mobile world…

Home » Mobile Brands » Apple » Philippines is top 3 user of Opera Mini in SEA

The Philippines has topped the list of Opera Mini users in South East Asia (SEA).


The country ranks number three and has poised a 353.6% growth in use among other SEA nations.

Page-view growth since May 2008: 1,572.5%
Unique-user growth since May 2008: 353.6%
Page-views per user: 705

And the top 10 sites that mobile users in the Philippines using Opera Mini are going to/using are the following:

  • friendster.com
  • google.com
  • yahoo.com
  • facebook.com
  • youtube.com
  • wikipedia.org
  • pinoywap.net
  • mbmgl.com
  • symbianize.com
  • sulit.com.ph

But other might say that opera mini users in the country are not that significant compared to those who use the built-in browser or those who doesn’t use the internet on their phone at all. But hey, a tri-fold growth in users would surely mean:

  1. More mobile phone usres are beginning to be mobile-tech-savvy and now knows how to download and use third party services such as opera mini.
  2. Opera Mini is penetrating the mobile community in the country
  3. There are now more mobile phones that can be able to download third party applications like opera mini than the previous years.
  4. More mobile phone users are not happy with their phone’s built-in browser (ouch!). Nokia tops the list of opera mini users

The report also gives us the idea that:

  • Mobile phone users are now using their phones for social networking aside from just the usual text and call. (can be attributed to the low cost of mobile internet )
  • Pinoys are now more attached to social networking that they want to always be “in touch” with one another
  • There is a need for website owners and administrators to enable their sites to be read and seen on mobile phones.
  • Sulit.com.ph is an online marketplace and mobile phone users are now using the internet to buy and sell products and services.

I’m more concerned about #4. I hope mobile phone makers make their built-in browsers better.

    browsing in opera mini not free? Opera mini has always been free. But browsing using your data plan is not. But if you are using free wi-fi then that’s a different story. :D
