So what is the data on mobile marketing? How many people have cell phones? Is it just teenagers with smart phones and execs touting their Crackberries slung to their side stepping into the center of the street at high noon ready for a gunsling with a Bluetooth ear piece stapled to their ear?
Ok, yes it is just the execs with the annoying Bluetooth earpieces implanted in their ear canal. But aside from the last fact, er, there is a lot of data. Below is a nice image with some really interesting numbers for you, now you don't have to read.
