Last week, comScore shared some interesting information about mobile behaviors in Canada. This coincided with comScores launch of their mobile measuring product, comScore MobiLens in Canada. This product presents a leading view on the Canadian mobile media landscape (as well as US, European and Japanese landscapes).
Some of the findings specific to the Canadian market included:
