The latest ‘Econsultancy’ blog post is titled “US smartphone engagement has overtaken desktop: stats”.

Christopher Ratcliff says, “Since December 2010, US smartphone engagement has increased three-fold from 131bn total minutes spent on the device per month to 442bn by December 2013.

Although tablets were very much in their infancy in 2010, they too have seen a mighty increase over the same period, a 10-fold growth to 124bn minutes per month.

These figures come from comScore’s latest report on the future of digital in the US.

It states that smartphones alone have surpassed desktop usage in 2013, with 429bn minutes now spent on the previously dominant screen“.
