    Mashable reports today on new figures from mobile analytics firm Arieso that show that smartphone users “consistently consume†more data than tablet users do. And it seems that at the top of the chart of the “hungriest†data users are iPhone 5 owners, who use 50% more data than iPhone 4S users, and four times what iPhone 3G users consume. In general, mobile data use is soaring to new heights, thanks to “new devices and richer content,†in the words of Arieso.

    Arieso’s figures also reveal that 40% of all data is consumed by just 1% of users.

    iPhone 5 had LTE, as does iPad 3. 4s is 3G. No wonder they don't use much data. Lot more phones, too.
