Mobile is up..and its usage reflects a higher percentage of local. Its good that guys like you and Greg and others keep reporting on this so that Neanderthals like me have an opportunity to learn

Yes the numbers are getting significant, perhaps surpassing Safari market share by next year. Clearly, the time is upon us to not only check our sites in Firefox, Chrome, Safari and IE (but not 6), but also in iOS4 and possibly Android.
But first you have to get a smartphone

I wonder if they are lumping the iPad and similar tablet devices into these mobile traffic numbers. It may be a mobile device but in my opinion is a fundamentally different kind of mobile vs a smartphone. To me, browsing on an ipad is not much different than a laptop, or using your laptop from a wifi at the coffee shop (making your laptop a mobile device). Larger tablet screen sizes makes for full website browsing vs. sites that have a mobile dedicated version for the small phone screens.
