After receiving a number of requests for more data on specific geographies, we are pleased to present a snapshot of the top sites in Latin America. Research reports suggest up to 80% of the mobile phones in Latin America are capable of running a lightweight Web browser like Opera Mini.
While Latin America presents an incredible future growth opportunity, the mobile Web has already arrived. Just as with other countries we've surveyed, allowing people to access the full Web ultimately drives accelerated use of the Web on mobile devices. And just as in other countries, search and social networking comprise a large percentage of the traffic.
We're pleased to play our own role by providing some of the technology to help make this possible. In August, we signed our first deal in Latin America with Movistar Mexico. And we hope that Opera Mini's data compression, which can cut the data costs for consumers, also encourages people to spend more time surfing on their mobile phone without having to worry about their next bill.
Thanks again for reading and for your ongoing interest in the mobile Web revolution.

CEO, Opera Software
