Telephone numbers

Recently ABI Research (www.abiresearch.com) commented that more than 321 million mobile handsets were shipped in Q2 -2100. The company noted the rise in market share for LG and Nokia's continued decline. Interesting stuff, but the Editor was amazed by the numbers. This represents an annual output of over 1,000 million (one billion) handsets. The world population is about 7,000 million (seven billion). Generally accepted figures indicate that about 80% of the world's population (about 5 billion people) live on less than $10 a day so the handsets are not distributed uniformly through the population. Recent figures (www.itu.int/ITU-D/ict/publications/idi/2010/Material/MIS_2010_Summary_E.pdf) give a total of 4.6 billion mobile subscriptions by the end of 2009. Like most people I do talk to myself from time to time but are people now doing it by mobile?
