Every month, our State of the Mobile Web report is packed with information about what people do with Opera Mini. But there are always some pieces of information that we don't include in the report. One interesting piece of information is what phones are popular among Opera Mini users.
As a part of this Insider Scoop we are publishing the most used phones by Opera Mini users and the top phones used to download Opera Mini last month. This information gives a cool perspective on what models have been popular in the last months and what are the latest best-selling phones.
This is not a scientific exercise, but with over 19 million unique users of Opera Mini, it gives an insight into what is popular.
- Nokia and Sony Ericsson dominate the list and are clearly the most popular brands among Opera Mini users.
- Opera Mini is popular with Blackberry users, when compared with the Blackberry global market share they rank very high among Opera Mini users.
- Opera Mini seems to be popular both in mid/low end phones as well on so-called smartphones. It seems that, regardless of whether you pay $10 or $300 for your phone, you still want "the Internet"
- The only model on the top 25 that is not from Nokia, Sony Ericsson or a Blackberry is the Samsung E250. No Motorola phones appear in the top 25... looks like those pink RAZRs are not so popular anymore.
