IMS Research estimates that the internet will soon have its 5 billionth device hooking up
Did you know that there’s a company that actually monitors the great World Wide Web i.e. the infinite internet? Well it doesn’t exactly monitor it but it does keep track of how many devices are using it. IMS research, a market research provider to the global electronics industry are the guys who are saying that the 5 billionth internet savvy device will be logging on soon. What’s also quite interesting, other than the fact that most of us are wondering just how in the blazes they got that data, is that out of that very large number of devices only 1 billion are computers while the majority consist of mobile internet device like handsets etc. Viva la internet et viva la IMS research, just let us know who that 5 billionth person is though.
