Hi Stephane,

Both AdMob metrics 
http://www.admob.com/s/solutions/metrics

and Opera's monthly State of the Mobile web reports 
http://www.opera.com/mobile_report/

consistently show the 6600 towards the top of the list (and many of the
other devices on the list are in the same spec. range as the 6600). Grant it
those statistics are quite specific in context but they also reflect massive
amounts of traffic coming from emerging economies.

Hi Stephanie,

any sources for that ?

Cheers
