Report: Mobile/Internet Lifestyle of Opera Mini users in Nigeria
In July 2010, Opera.com conducted a survey of Opera Mini users around the world.
Users of Opera Mini were shown a notification asking them to take the survey, and, if they agreed to do so, they could answer the questions directly on their mobile phones.
In addition to collecting demographic data and information regarding their use and opinions of Opera Mini, the survey focused on questions regarding users’ mobile/Internet lifestyle. The survey was deployed in 9 different languages and was made accessible to users all around the world.
The report highlights the previously unpublished data surrounding mobile/Internet lifestyle choices and attitudes among Opera Mini users in various countries around the world.
Opera’s Report focused on results from users in the United States, China, India, Indonesia, Nigeria, Russia, South Africa, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, Vietnam, Brazil, Germany and Poland.
In this article, I have focused on the results of the survey in Nigeria.
