Report Specifications

Purpose of Report

ScientiaMobile has published MOVR to provide the mobile Web


community with timely information on mobile Web device
usage.

We hope to stimulate interest in mobile device trends, device


capabilities, and tools for analyzing and managing device
fragmentation.

Included
Smartphones
Tablets
Feature
Phones

Excluded
Desktops and laptops
Smart TV
Game Consoles
Apps
Robots

Sources of Data and Filtering

The information in this report is based on a representative


sample of a larger data set. The sample size is 2.5 billion
requests from April 2014 to end of September 2014.

MOVR focuses on mobile devices, consisting of smartphones,


tablets, and feature phones.

While the dataset includes desktops, laptops, smart TVs, game


consoles, apps, and robots, we have excluded them, unless
otherwise noted

We have used an Equivalent Weighted Sites (EWS)


methodology that indexes the traffic at each site and assigns an
equal weight to each site.

MOVR

Samples sizes for Africa and Oceania are small enough that we
have a low level of confidence that these figures are
representative. However, the source data from these
continents continues to grow. Over time, we will improve the
quality of these figures. In the meantime, we feel that more
information is better than less for people looking for insights in
these continents.

Definitions

What is a Hit? Each time a user visits a Web page and a UA is


generated and tested by WURFL (through a number of
mechanisms), a hit is recorded in the ScientiaMobile
dataset. All data reported in MOVR reflects hits, not the
count of physical devices generating the hit.

What is a smartphone? A smartphone must meet several


criteria, including that it should be a wireless device, have a
touch screen with horizontal resolution greater than or equal
to 320px, and not be considered a tablet.

What is a tablet? Criteria for a tablet include: a wireless


device, larger than 6, and running a mobile or tablet OS. One
exception is that a full version of Windows on running on a
tablet is considered to be a laptop.

Definitions (continued)

What is a feature phone? It is a wireless device that falls into one


of the three categories: classic feature phones, modern feature
phones, and old smartphones

Classic feature phone: Typically a bar, slide or clamshell


form factor with limited possibilities to install apps and a
proprietary OS. Other criteria include a physical keyboard
and a low price range. Examples are Nokia Series 30 and 40
or Motorola Razr devices.

Modern feature phone: These phones also have a low price


range. They are smartphone-like, but targeted at the
classic feature phone market. They may have a smartphone
OS. They borrow features from classic feature phones, such
as size or screen size. Examples are Nokia Asha series or
Samsung Galaxy Pocket.

MOVR

Old smartphones: These smartphones are older than 3 years


and were high-end devices when launched. Classic
Blackberry devices and Symbian-based devices fall in this
category. Likewise, more recent devices with a touch screen,
but with older hardware or older versions of Android, iOS or
Windows Phone also fall in this category.

About WURFL

ScientiaMobile uses its WURFL products to collect and analyze


the device intelligence contained in the MOVR report. WURFL is
a Device Detection Repository (DDR) that integrates an API and
XML to provide an always-updated source for detecting devices
and their capabilities. For more than 10 years, WURFL has been
the industry standard for device detection. Today,
ScientiaMobile offers a number of WURFL products to suit a
range of needs, from small developers to large enterprises.

WURFL OnSite and WURFL InFuze provide businesses with high


performance server-side device detection solutions.

WURFL Cloud provides an always-updated, low-maintenance


approach to device detection.

WURFL.js and WURFL.js Business Edition provide front-end


developers with access to the power of device detection through
javascript snippets.

WURFL InSight provides business intelligence analysts with a


table-based device detection tool that will integrate easily with
data analysis tools.

Comparison of Continents

Webviews from App Traffic

Hits from browsers embedded in Apps ( App Webviews) are excluded from most MOVR analysis to focus on Mobile Web traffic.
However, for every ~4.5 mobile browser hits, there is one webview from a browser embedded in an App. This trend has implications
for developers and advertisers.
Of the App webviews, 36% comes from Apps running iOS, and remainder (64%) is from Android.

Note: These figures do not reflect an EWS methodology

Ratio of Browser vs. App Webview by OS by Continent

Most of the App Webviews come from social media apps (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest).
While iOS represents a smaller total pool of devices relative to Android, iOS generates a higher frequency of App webviews in all
continents except Asia.

Form Factor Trends

Tablet growth in Asia is proceeding, but it remains small in comparison to Europe and N. America. In many ways, the Asian
preference for larger smartphones may provide a substitute for tablets.
S. America is showing a drop in feature phones and growth in smartphones.
