The number of mobile devices will outstrip the global population in 2012, according to Cisco’s latest Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast.

The company predicts that the number of mobile devices, including those for purely machine-to-machine contact, will pass the human population this year – and there will be over 10 billion by 2016. In terms of mobile data, Cisco is predicting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 78 per cent for the next five years, so that by 2016 the world’s mobile networks will carry 10 exabytes of data each month.

Didn't answer the question that sprang first to mind, though: At year's end, what part of the world's population will have a cell phone but not running water?

Was going to go look up how many zeros make an exabyte (or what multiple of 2^10 if you want to be persnickety about it), but hadn't the energy.

I just want to know if your websites are mobile friendly. Full loop for me, back to 640x480. The better we get the more we rely on yesterday. In our hands instead of a desktop. Think about it.

Thought about that too, coming full circle as it were.
