Africa Passes Europe in Mobile Connections

Here’s the excerpt from the link that matters:

Africa has passed Western Europe in the number of mobile connections during the final quarter of 2010, Wireless Intelligence reported on Thursday.

The new report said that African mobile connections reached 547.5 million during the final three months of 2010, up nearly 20 percent from the previous year.

In comparison, Western Europe reported 523.6 million connections, or an increase of less than one percent from 2009

That’s a pretty amazing thing to consider. No wonder I saw someone on Charlie Rose last night that was talking about Africa as a great opportunity for people to grow their business. Some of the coolest mobile healthcare projects that I’ve seen are happening in places like Africa. It’s no wonder why mobile healthcare is so popular considering this growth.
