Mobile device connections growing quickly – The Washington Post

If there was ever any doubt — by whom? — about the ubiquity of mobile devices and the potential for mobile applications, there isn’t:

” … data released Monday by GSMA, an association of cell operators whose Mobile World Congress just opened for a four-day run in Barcelona, shows the total number of mobile connections surging to 7.4 billion this year, up from 6.8 billion in 2012. The world population sits at about 7.1 billion, and is growing far more slowly.”

This coming from The Mobile World Congress, “an annual event expected to draw 70,000 people to this seaside Spanish city, is largely devoted to wringing even more money out of one of the world’s great growth industries — one that has managed to thrive even as the global economy has struggled in recent years.”

This clear implication:

That means new devices, new apps, new ways to reach the remotest corner of every potential market.

Which, of course, we at FotoNotes are very excited about. More here:
