Yesterday, we hosted our IGNITION WEST: Future of Mobile conference in San Francisco.
To kick off the conference, our BI Intelligence team—Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry, Alex Cocotas, and I—put together a deck on the current trends in . We looked closely at the growth of smartphones and tablets, the platform wars, and how consumers are actually using their devices.

Some of the more interesting slides:
- 70% of Pandora music, 55% Twitter, 33% of Facebook time is on mobile
- Apps are $10B growing at 100% per year
- More android phones are sold but most of the money is still on iOS. This presentation doesn't even include iPod touch which is a big part of the base, and doesn't have any competition from Android (essentially a phone-sized tablet, as a tablet is a scaled up PDA without a phone)
- Market is mostly Apple and Android. Windows Phone has its good points, but isn't making much of a dent in market yet. Windows probably shouldn't have completely ditched sizeable base of non-touch phones and windows 6.5 CE style which it could have done if WP7 were able to run old apps
