Mobile phone subscriptions hit 3.3 billion

3.3 billion mobile phone subscriptionsJust last month, we heard that there were some 2.68 billion mobile accounts currently active in the world, but a new study by Informa has originate that there are actually 3.3 billion subscriptions. This number is somewhat significant considering that it's around half of the world's population, but alas, not half of all earthlings actually own a cellphone.

Researchers found that 59 countries had mobile penetration over 100%, suggesting that some individuals actually accounted for numerous mobile subscriptions. Sure, the figures here could be picked apart in a myriad ways, but why not just raise your handset to commemorate hitting the big three point three?
