Data Monday: Mobile Devices Per Day

by Luke Wroblewski May 19, 2013

Last year, I illustrated the importance of mobile by highlighting how many devices enter the World each day compared to the number of people born per day on our planet. The ratio was striking. Looking at the same figures today is even more sobering.

The End of 2011

The total of smartphones entering the World per day was about 1.45M devices compared to 371,124 births.

The total of smartphones entering the World per day was about 3.6M devices again compared to the same 371 thousand births.
