Cellular News today reports there are 2.5 Billion Mobile Phones In Use around the world.

Sometime yesterday, the total number of cellular connections in the world reached 2.5 billion, having passed through the 2 billion mark just 12 months ago, according to estimates from Wireless Intelligence - a venture between Ovum and the GSM Association.

Comscore Networks announced in May that 694 Million People Currently Use the Internet Worldwide. The point is not that there’s more cell phone connections than internet connections; it’s that there’s lots of folks getting connected. 40 million new mobile connections per month.
