It is claimed that by the end of this year one in four people in China will have a mobile phone. At this moment in China about one in five people have a mobile phone.
In the first four months of this year, the number of mobile phone users rose by 27m to 296m, said the Ministry of Information Industry. Mobile phone usage accounts for almost a half of all revenues in China's telecoms industry, it said.
Although phone users in China are latching on to SMS and wireless Internet, they're also starting to get into mobile games too. Which is nice.
