    While the study you refer to focus on the European market, if you add in Japan and China you can clearly see that the US is lagging far behind the rest of the world with regards to Internet access via mobile. This is a strange phenomenon that doesn’t seem to have any clear cut answers. One theory, regarding the gap between China and US mobile internet users is the fact that the penetration of home computers in the US is higher than that of China. Also nearly everyone in China has a cell phone but many don’t have a computer. Who knows why we aren’t there yet.
