According to a report released by Arieso, a UK-based provider of mobile network management solutions, data usage for the iPhone 4S is nearly double that of the iPhone 4 and the iPad and, says Arieso, one of the primary reasons is Siri.

“Voice is the ultimate human interface. As you lower the barriers consumers will use their smartphones’ functions even more often,” points out Arieso CTO Michael Flanagan.

Adds the Arieso report: “One thing is clear: the capacity issues plaguing mobile operators around the world will worsen in 2012.”
