With more than 70 million mobile and tablet users connecting to Yahoo! properties each month, we’re laser-focused on staying current with the wants and needs of mobile users, and sharing those findings with you. In that spirit, today’s infographic offers insights into mobile usage trends by time spent, industry, geography, and more.
