Mobile Market Research

I now list market research on a separate ‘pinterest’ style site

Here’s my list of links to older mobile market research. Some of the old links from as far back as 2004 no longer work. However, I have kept them because the titles hold some information. It’s also often possible to use the WayBackMachine to find the original article. (Right click a link and do ‘Copy Shortcut’ in Internet Explorer, ‘Copy Link Location’ in Firefox, ‘Copy link address’ in Chrome and paste the address into the WayBackMachine.)
