Airtel publishes Infographic on Rise of Smartphones in India

Couple of days back Airtel released a mobile app allowing customers to manage various Airtel services which included their mobile, DTH as well as internet services. This app was released on all mobile platforms making sure that all Airtel customers could use it irrespective of their mobile phone OS.

Airtel has gone ahead and released an excellent infographic that reveals the reason behind releasing these apps – The rise of Smartphones in India (which is kind of obvious now). However, the infographic does put across some very interesting numbers.

One statistics is that the use of mobile web has nearly doubled in last one year – From 70 million to 132 million. Here is another interesting one – 77% of Indians have nearly 30 mobile apps installed on their phone. Music and Social Networking are the 2 categories which rule Indian users’ mobile phone apps. Checkout Airtel’s Infographic for more such numbers.

  1. Interesting… but, I think the word "Million" is missing in the insight "$450 expected revenue by mobile apps in India…" Also, there are few mistakes in the data representation: 1) The Pie chart "Why Do We Download Apps?" adds up to 106% (58% + 48%) and not 100%. 2) The Donut chart "How Much Do We Use Them?" adds up to 70% (48% + 22%) and not 100%. 3) The Pie chart "Where Do We Use Them?" adds up to 60% (31% + 29%) and not 100%.

  2. Interesting, but why there is no mention of this on the official website of airtel?
