5 in 10 Top U.S. Mobile Devices Are Brew Feature Phones

By: Kate Dreyer
Qualcomm recently commissioned comScore to conduct a study on the U.S. mobile audience to gain insight into the penetration of the Brew feature phone platform in the mobile market today. The study found that as of May 2011, 65.6 million U.S. mobile subscribers age 13+ were using devices running on the Brew operating system. This represents 40 percent of the feature phone user market – a 20 percent increase from the previous year. More notably, in May 2011, 5 out of the top 10 mobile devices in the U.S. were running on the Brew platform, competing head-to-head with smartphones.

These insights and more were presented at a joint webinar with  Qualcomm. You can watch the recording or view the slides from the  presentation here: Brew Consumer Research Findings.
