3.3 billion of us love our cell phones (and that's a good thing)
It's hard for me to imagine 3.3 million people, let alone 3.3 billion, but that's how many of us are cell phone fanatics, or at least cell phone users, worldwide. Although cell phone sales have apparently dropped in Western Europe, by the end of 2007, India and China had signed up 154 million and 143 million new subscribers respectively.
And our worldwide love of cell phones is a good thing, too: The Scotsman reports that more and more of us are finding cell phones help us to stay connected with our friends and family, with texting cited as particularly useful.
Which means that I really should upgrade to a Blackberry, Palm Centro or iPhone for the good of society . . . right?
