How many SMS messages are sent per day?
Telecoms. Quaking. In. Their. Boots.
Wait, why would it go down?
Your chart's telling me that iMessage is a minuscule fraction. With their insane prices, they shouldn't be worried about anything but the fact that it encompasses more than just phones, which SMS can't.
Interesting; true. A significant portion of those feature phones are being replaced by Android devices, however, and still people are entering the cell phone game for the first time.
It all seems really vague to me. Why we can't just find actual numbers in realtime makes me curious. I know the telecoms would lie about any penetration of iMessage, but seeing both sales and usage share of feature to smart and what phones use what services would be really helpful.
