From CIO Insight - 10 Awesome Facts About the Mobile Revolution slideshow.

Several highlight the scale and scope of mobile, mobile data, and mobile broadband
  • There are more than 6.7 global mobile subscriptions, 30% for smartphones
  • Global subscriptions for mobile broadband will pass 2 billion this year, projected to hit 8 billion by end of 2019
  • Subscriptions for mobile PCs, tablets, and mobile routers are projected to grow from 300 million currently, to 750 million by 2019
  • In 2009, there was more voice traffic on the mobile network than data traffic.  Today, data traffic is more than 9 times higher than voice traffic.
  • Data traffic per smartphone currently averages 600 MB per month, expected to hit 2200 MB per month by 2019
  • Data traffic per tablet currently averages 1000 MB/mo; will hit 4500 MB/mo  by 2019.  Mobile PC data traffic currently averages 3300 MB/mo, projected to reach 13,000 MB/mo in 2019
  • By 2019, 95% of North American will have LTE (mobile broadband) coverage.  Globally, about 2/3 of the world's population will have LTE access.
A significant contributor to the mobile revolution is the growth of online video options and services, social media, and various entertainment/gaming options
  • By 2019, half of mobile data traffic will derive from video.
  • Smartphone owners spend, on average, 13 hours monthly on social networking, 8 hours on entertainment, and 6 hours gaming.
The impact may be greatest in Asia, where the growth of mobile broadband provides quick and relatively cheap access to the Net and its content and services to some of the world's most populous countries.
  • China alone has 1.2 mobile subscriptions, and India 742 million.  The rest of the Asia-Pacific region includes a further 1.3 billion subscriptions.  In contrast, Africa accounts for 803 million subscriptions, and Latin America 697 million.
The numbers and forecasts come from the most recent Ericsson Mobility Report.
