The company predicts that penetration of mobile phones will grow from 90 per cent in 2004 to 98 per cent by 2006, before reaching the 100 per cent mark the following year. The launch of 3G around Europe will be the catalyst for growth, with consumers buying new mobile phones and SIM cards to avail themselves of new services, according to the report."</i><br /><br />No wonder all the cool phones show up in Europe first. They obviously love cell phones more than we do here in North America. I urge all North American residents to help change this by owning at least two cell phones. We can turn this around if we try!! 8)
