According to the Mobile Data Association (MDA), 2.1 billion text messages were sent in March 2004, a 25% rise on the total from the same month last year.
That is a lot of text messages. I mean more than a metric tonne of text messages. We’re talking more than a humpback whale of text messages.
If I were a Stupid American, I might not be able to fathom such a large number of text messages. Luckily I’m a mobile tech geek and that number excites me. In a big way.
If only we could figure out that your phone is capable of doing more than just talking. Stupid Americans…
