Can you imagine a world where nearly every person owns a cell phone?
We’re heading in that direction says the International Telecommunications Union. Their data reports that there are over 6 billion cellphone subscriptions worldwide at this point. With the world’s population just over 7 billion, we’re not far off! This number amounts to 86 out of every 100 people owning a cellphone.
Of the over 6 billion cellphones, 1.2 billion are smartphones. Within the next year, that number is believed to jump over the 2 billion mark. In the United States alone, 56% of cellphone subscribers use a smartphone as their device.
A leap from just over 20% of smartphone users worldwide to 30% in one year goes to show that the mobile web market is still untapped. Although the mobiFriendly platform supports over 2000 mobile websites worldwide, there are still many more sites that have yet to be integrated from desktop to mobile.
