No slowing of mobile messaging services growth in tough economic times

With the global economy showing dramatic signs of slowing, mobile messaging growth will continue, claims a new report from ABI Research stating mobile messaging services revenues will grow from US$151 billion in 2008 to greater than US$212 billion globally by 2013. Supply side drivers will be of primary importance for maintaining this level of growth. "Mobile messaging ARPUs are 85%+ of all handset data services revenues regardless of region and will remain so for many years," said analyst Dan Shey. Article
