Data Passes Phone Calls in Mobile

Tech consultant Chetan Sharma looked at the financial statements of mobile carriers around the world and found that for the first time, mobile phones are used more for accessing data than they are for making phone calls. If this continues, he says, by 2010 the total number of broadband connections worldwide will exceed the number of fixed connections. And finally, the Phillipines, which for years has been the global leader in text messaging, was surpassed by the US.  And your kid probably was a prime contributor to it. As far as apps are concerned, “the total number of app downloads in 2009 reached 7 billion resulting in approximately $4.1B in revenues 12% of which was from mobile advertising.”
