New data from Jumptap, the leader in targeted mobile advertising, shows that consumers in the South and Southwest tend to be Android-biased compared to the rest of the country, while those in the Midwest and Northeast lean towards iOS. California, Texas and Florida over-index for Android use and states in New England and the Midwest over-index for iOS use. Blackberry use, which over-indexed in New York, was also included in the geographic data. This new data establishes an evolving narrative of a North vs. South divide in the ongoing battle of the two top mobile operating systems.

When consumers want to learn more about a vehicle or car maker, they are reaching for their mobile devices at an astonishing rate. Data released today from a study from Jumptap, the leader in targeted mobile advertising, and based on data from comScore, found that traffic to mobile automotive sites is increasing at a much greater rate than their online counterparts.

May 2011 data released today by Jumptap, the leader in targeted mobile advertising, found that while the primary function of mobile ads has been to drive U.S. consumers to the Web, many campaigns are increasingly setting their sights elsewhere. The May Jumptap monthly data report, entitled MobileSTAT (Simple Targeting & Audience Trends), found that 34 percent of performance focused campaigns are set to initiate a call or download, rather than direct the user to a web site.

Is midday the best time to run advertising on mobile phones? According to the latest monthly data from Jumptap, that's when ad interaction rates peak on the mobile ad network. Conversely, click-through rates are at their lowest during the morning commute and early hours of the workday.
