Wattpad release Q3 traffic report

Watpad have released the Metrics Report for the third quarter 2010. This report analyzes the amount of traffic their site received over the last 3 months. It's 12 pages long and only slightly denser than a powerpoint, so I'd say it's worth a read. You can download it here.

Here are the highlights:

  • In mobile reading, iOS device, BlackBerry and Android devices have collec2vely (52%) taken over Java devices in Q3 (48%).  iOS devices contributed to over 42% of mobile readership, whereas BlackBerry and Android devices contributed 7% and 3% respec2vely.
  • BlackBerry devices have experienced a 31% growth in Q3, followed by iOS devices (14%) and Android devices (12%).  Growth in Java devices have remained ?at in Q3 (1%).
  • The Android eReading market is very fragmented: HTC currently leads with 26%, followed by Motorola (21% and Samsung (15%)
  • English users con2nue to make up the largest share of the eBook Market. The Top 4 English speaking countries account for over 55% of eBook consumption
  • Teenagers and Young Adults are the most ac2ve eBook consumers.  Almost 85% are under the age of 20 (more female than male), which mirrors the usage pa6ern found in mobile text messaging

About Nate Hoffelder (11807 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
