The Mobile Device Is Becoming Humankind’s Primary Tool | Technology Review

People everywhere are consuming more and more wireless bandwidth to manage a wider variety of tasks. Evidence shows that the mobile phone is becoming indispensable to us: more people are paying for apps, and they’re more willing to trade privacy for benefits.

Chart 2: Mobile service is among the fastest-spreading technologies in history. The number of mobile-phone accounts worldwide has doubled, to about 5.5 billion, over the past five years, while world population has reached nearly 6.7 billion.

Note: These data track accounts, not individuals, and some people have two or more accounts.
