That's "able to reach," which is different than "reaches."
(Hmmm. Make a note. In future press releases...)

They can reach my phone but they can't touch it ;)
Sounds to me like "We really are doing just fine on our own, we don't need anybody else", but in his head he is saying "I hope everyone believes all this crap, we really need all the help we can get".
Yhoo really dont need any help, what I see they have planed there future good, about this mobile news, its good news but not more.
I saw their mobile presentation at Web2.0 in San Fran that showcased their mobile projects. It was some really impressive stuff. I'd definitely use it now if it was in even beta form.
Very slick stuff and I'd be open to it as an advertising platform for local businesses.
Internet phones will be the next big thing in the US with massive profits and potentially more daily users than the traditional home based internet. Big G is trying to get in there also... it's going to be the next big thing and will be very interesting to see how this plays out. Yahoo is off to a great start in this market.
1,018,057,389 internet users can reach my website, maybe I should put a banner on it ;)
This has a much bigger effect outside North America then most of you here may realize and that is where that number comes from.
Most Asian countries use SMS and MMS services along with some GPRS/data transfer stuff... a lot of people don't even have talk time activated on their phones because that is too expensive. Also the data plans and the SMS/MMS plans are cheap compared to USA rates... and are EXTREMELY cheaper then in Canada.
That is why the report is out of Singapore.
I just launched my first MMS/SMS gateway so that I can do text and MMS services through any of my sites, I am also getting ready to resell the services..

And then why bother? I think all the big companies are jumping the shark. Sure mobile devices will become much more popular but will the machines have better capacity.
