Thoughts

While it is possible that a mobile network hack may have resulted in the increase in Opera Mini usage in Nigeria, I think that Nigeria is a strong contender in the top 10 list.

This is an indication that mobile advertisement would thrive as more and more people turn to mobile web browsing.

Interestingly, Opera has seen huge potentials in Nigeria’s mobile web space and is sponsoring the first Social Innovation Camp in Africa to be held in Lagos, Nigeria come January 2011.

At SICamp, Opera would be providing seed funding to the best social innovation ideas as well mobile apps out of Nigeria.
