If you know me, then you know that I am a huge fan and user of mobile devices. My passion is not about having the latest and greatest, but because I see mobile as the single greatest space (present and future) to impact this world using technology. At the start of last year, 3.3 billion people were mobile phone users. This is a global phenomenon and contrary to what many believe, “global” actually includes the US 🙂 13-17-year-olds in the US send/receive an average of 1,742 sms messages each month. EVERY populated area on Earth is affected by the growth of mobile usage. So mobile is really both global and local.
