    Saw these on The Register, and thought a few people here might be interested:

    According to the GSM Association, more than 75 billion SMS text messages were sent in the first 3 months of this year.

    The number of GSM subscribers worldwide increased by 167 million last year - there are now approximately three quarters of a billion users worldwide.

    Alas, us poor bastards in the US, slave to corporations that want to tell us how to spend our money, have sought fit to deploy CDMA/TDMA technologies.

    As a result, making choices in the US is harder.

    But, I supose, except for Microsoft, choice is a good thing.

    Oh yeah, figures don't lie...only lairs figure.

    I really wish the phone companies would get off their asses and listen.

    It's not really fair to lump CDMA and TDMA together. The fact that they're both non-GSM doesn't really make them comparable technologies.

    TDMA is on its way out. You'd be hard-pressed to find a TDMA carrier anywhere in the world who hasn't developed plans to transition to another standard. Many are going to GSM/GPRS and/or EDGE as intermediary steps before WCDMA (a 3G standard), others are going to CDMA2000 (also a 3G standard).
