Mobile message-mad Norwegians break all records
Norwegians are the most eager mobile phone users in the world. This is an assertion of course. Now their habit of sending text and photo messages over their phones is breaking all previous records, but that seems pretty expensive. Numbers show that the country's the two leading mobile phone providers, Netcom and Telenor, handled nearly 35 million photo messages from January to June. That compares to 18 million MMS transactions in the same period last year. The number of text messages, meanwhile, jumped to 1.86 billion, from 1.45 billion in the first half of 2004.
