5 Billion connected phones world wide

According to our sister site, 5 billion people now have mobile phones. The billion barrier was broken this week. 5 billion people is 73% penetration. Penetration is the number of phones divided by the number of people, because large number of people have more than 1 phone it is possible to have more than 100% penetration; for example Italy has a penetration rate of 151% penetration.

Currently every second there are 25 new phones and 4 new people on this planet.

EyeMags now supports Bada Wave platform

Following our successful launch of Android support we now offer the same support for Bada Wave devices using webapps. Now thousands of EyeMags are available as interactive webapps.

CEO Robin Jewsbury said "Bada is a great platform, but Samsung do not allow delivery of apps to their wave phones outside their own SamsungApps download platform. So instead of deliverying native apps we now deliver the same functionality as a webapp from EyeMags. Separately we can package up any eyemags and deliver them via SamsungApps, so we get the best of both worlds."

Any publisher can now experiment creating their apps for any phone using EyeMags technology and then if they want that app downloaded from a native app platform such as iTunes, Ovistore or SamsungApps they can contact us and pay a small fee to have the app made available for download as a native app.
