38% of US Cell Phone Owners Access the Internet From Their Mobile Device

A very interesting survey conducted by Pew Internet during the month of May indicates that there has been significant growth in US mobile Internet usage during the last year. The survey shows that 38% of US cell phone owners use their device to access the Internet, compared to last year when it was only 28%.

The statistics are even higher when looking at the age group of 18-29 years old cell phone owners, as 65% of them access the Internet from their mobile device.

For all the businesses that are still thinking about their mobile strategy (“we want to do it, it’s on our roadmap…”), it’s time to get moving.

[update] Comscore released a similar survey showing that 32% of US mobile subscribers use the mobile browser to access the Internet
