Mobile phone subscribers
Mobile phones were launched in 1984 and the market has
been booming ever since. In 20 years they have spread like
wildfire. By September 2004 there were 344 million subscribers (out of a population of 380 million) in the 15 (old) members of the European Union. According to Nokia there will be 2 000 million cellphone users worldwide by 2008.
