“Mobile technology firm dotMobi has taken a shot at visualizing the world based on device browsing rather than just sales figures,” Jon Russell reports for TNW. “The company — which offers a range of mobile-specific services, including publishing, developer and domain tools — sifted through “billions of mobile site views” on its goMobi mobile publishing platform to provide insight into the most popular mobile platforms in 101 countries.”

“dotMobi isn’t able to provide an overall figure for combined global data nor a summary of traffic based on the sheer volume, but it does say that iOS devices dominate browsing in 34 countries, while Android is the leader in the remaining 67 nations that it tracks,” Russell reports. “Importantly, though, iOS maintains the lead in key markets like the US, UK, Canada, France and Japan.”
