2008 has seen more phenomenal growth in the number of text messages that are being sent. The Mobile Data Association (MDA) published its research findings for July -September 2008 yesterday.
The figures show that in Q3 2008 there were 38% more texts sent than in the same time last year.
Interestingly, MMS is still a very small fraction of all the texts that are sent – we’re now sending 1.5 million MMS’s per day, compared to 217 millions SMS’s. This growth is being driven by new devices and services, adn is expected to continue as strongly for the foreseeable future.
