China sports the world’s highest population, and it isn’t surprising that the country has finally touched the 1 billion mobile subscribers mark. The first nation to do so, China now plays home a 1 billion mobile phones ringing away! Mobile subscriptions had touched 997 million by the end of the last month February, as per the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China. Also, China plays home to about 1.3 billion citizens, out of whom, 73.6% own a cell phone! And with this, we’ve just figured out just why the Chinese seem hell bent on churning up a new cell phone design every few hours!
