Opera Mini smartphone users go Android in Vietnam

The Opera Mini user base on smartphones has grown remarkably in Vietnam during the past year, with a 142% increase since July 2012. The country's recent 3G deployment, affordable data plans and budget smartphones have fueled this growth. However, it is Android that has seen the most impressive growth, with a 211% increase in the number of Opera Mini users during the same period, becoming the second-largest platform among Opera Mini users in Vietnam.

Some key trends highlighted in this State of the Mobile Web report:

  • Opera Mini users on Android browse more webpages and consume more data, compared to other Opera Mini users. On average, the number of pages viewed was 63% higher on Android than other platforms.
  • Vietnamese users like to stay well informed. In all, 21 out of the top 100 websites visited by Opera Mini users on Android were news and information sites, accounting for 27% of the total Opera Mini data consumption on Android.
  • Facebook leads social. Some 69% of Vietnamese users have visited social-networking sites, but it's clear Facebook is the most popular one, with four out of every five pages viewed occurring on the famous social network.
