While not the normal analytics post, this one is still focused on data. Techcrunch has an article detailing the expected growth in mobile data volume over the course of the next 5 years. The growth will be based both on increases in number of smartphone users as well as data volumes for each user.
Techcrunch reports that the Google Analytics API is now in public Beta. The solution has been in private beta for about a year. Developers will now be able to leverage the Google Analytics data to build new web analytics solutions available both online and offline. One of these new tools is Polaris, built by Desktop Reporting.
