Mobiles to ‘outnumber people’ early next year

Mobiles to ‘outnumber people’ early next year

Following on from our recent posts on Mobile Strategy and Mobile Technology in the work place, it was interesting to learn that it’s possible that there will be more mobile subscriptions than people in the world by the end of next year; according to a UN agency report.

“Every day we are moving closer to having almost as many mobile cellular subscriptions as people on earth,” said Brahima Sanou, director of the ITU Telecommunication Development Bureau. “The mobile revolution is ‘m-powering’ people in developing countries by delivering ICT applications in education, health, government, banking, environment and business.”

The report also found that 2.7 billion people, almost 40% of the world’s population, are online; Europe has the highest penetration (75%), followed by the Americas (61%). Asia has 32% of its population online, Africa 16%.

Reinforcing the need to ‘m-power’ your workforce with the right mobile technology in order to maximise their output and productivity, and offer your customers the ability to both purchase your products and more importantly access their accounts online.
