There's no doubt about it; the mobile Internet has exploded over the last few years. Right now there are close to half a billion people in the world who have access to the mobile Internet. By 2013, IDC expects that number (Digitimes) to exceed 1 billion. The total number of Internet users is also expected to grow by a staggering rate. There are currently 1.6 billion devices worldwide that have been used to access the Internet this year. By 2013, that number is expected to increase to 2.7 billion. At that point 2.2 billion people, more than 1/3rd of the human race, will have Internet access. Most of those new users are going to come from China and India.This is very good news for all sectors of the tech industry. The massive popularity of mobile Internet access means a future for smartphones, MIDs, tablet PCs, and all other 'always connected' portable Internet devices. The overall growth of the Internet means an increase in e-commerce, tons more jobs for people like me, and a heightened level of communication and improved information distribution worldwide.
