Just got this on TrendWatcher:
Looking beyond 2008, consider this:
* Right now, there are 2.7 billion mobile phones in use.
* The number of worldwide mobile phone users is expected to grow to approximately 3.3 billion in 2011. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to account for 47.9% of global subscribers by 2011.
* Globally, nearly 1 in 3 mobile subscribers will use a mobile broadband connection by 2012. This will represent over 1 billion users.
