OSNews, Generic OSes

It's been a while since we've done one of these, so here we go: some detailed platform and browser statistics for OSNews. They're collected using Google Analytics, between 12 April and 12 May. As always, these statistics are only relevant for OSNews, and can, in no way, be extrapolated to any other site.

That "one person" using Symbian S40 would most likely be me. I use Opera 4.5 on a Nokia 3110c (2008 vintage) sometimes, just to mess with Thom's statistics ;)

I'd say OSnews site is quite well readable on the tiny display (as of today's standards). Good job there, guys!

Osnews's mobile site works perfectly fine with N-Gage QD and opera as well. Great design!

I used to browse the mobile site on a Sony Walkman w580i feature phone using Opera Mini (Java Micro version). Could only see 1 or 2 comments at a time, but was perfectly readable and browsable. OSNews was one of the few sites that actually worked well with that phone+browser.

That was ... 4? years ago? Between 3 and 5 anyway.

I wonder how my N9 registers. I was thinking it could be misdetected as S40, but I guess it is misdetected as something else instead. At least Nokia Browser triggers.

Yep, I browse it occasionally on my N9 too, wonder if it counts under "Nokia Browser" or what... I guess the OS might be too insignificant to have shown up there at all, or maybe it's lumped in with Linux? Must do some investigation when I go home...

I can we wrong, but if I remember good s40 isn`t Symbian. Symbian is s60.

You are correct, S40 is "Nokia OS"
