United States Exceeds Western Europe in 3G Usage, Just Barely

Western Europe, the world’s leader in smartphone purchasing and usage, has been usurped by the United States in adoption of 3G devices. According to comScore Inc., a leader in researching and measuring digital media usage, the United States has caught up with Western Europe, citing 28.4 percent of American mobile phone subscribers using 3G handsets, narrowly edging Western Europe’s 28.3 percent. Most notably in the research, the number of United States subscribers with 3G devices has grown 80 percent in the past year. For years, the American mobile industry has aspired to Western European’s standards of mobile sophistication. Now, with the influx of sleek, powerful new phones, U.S. smartphone users can declare victory!
