The State of the Mobile Web report for September 2009 is out, and reveals that Opera Mini had more than 35.6 million users that month. That's nearly 4 million more users than in August!
It is also interesting to note that the number of users is up 150% since September 2008, while the number of page-views is up a massive 230%.
It's a good thing, then, that Opera Mini compresses the data before sending it to your phones. A calculation done in this month's SMW report reveals that Opera Mini users have shaved up to 8.1 billion dollars per year off their phone bills (and that is only within the top 10 countries!).
Looks like mobile browsing is definitely starting to take off.
