Mobile phones to outnumber global land lines by 2006?


UN report says there are almost 400 million mobiles in use with 250,000 being added each day. Some countries already have more mobiles than land lines, like Finland (51% of the market), Cambodia (58%) and Rwanda (72%). Pre-paid phones are the big success, with 75% of cellular users in Italy on pre-pay, 60% in Mexico.
