Today mobile phones have become a lifeline of our daily life. Almost everyone has at least one personal cell phone of their own: whether toddlers or the oldest man. Moreover, the mobile phone device has currently outnumbered the global human population, growing more than 7.2 billion.
“No other technology has impacted us like the mobile phone. It’s the fastest growing manmade phenomenon ever – from zero to 7.2 billion in three decades,” said Kevin Kimberlin, Chairman of Spencer Trask & Co.
