The iPhone's browsing marketshare stands at .09 percent five months after launch, coming close to being one out of every thousand pageviews on the internet. More interestingly, Windows CE—all Windows mobile platforms combined—has only 66 percent of that. Discuss. [CW]

Why should the iPhone version of the Mac OS be any different than the desktop version in that respect?

It's been a long-standing fact that a higher percentage of Mac users actually go online with their computer than do PC users. Back in the mid 90s until the turn of the century, it was a VERY pronounced difference... something like 85% or Mac users, and 45% of PC users.

It's the same thing with the mobile space now. It's a lot easier and more friendly to surf the web on an iPhone than it is on ANY windows Mobile device. You can expect to see Series 60 creeping up on WinMo too, I'd say.

When the 3G iPhone ships next year, along with 3rd-party apps, the device will be an utter powerhouse of mobile computing.
