MII statistics showed the Chinese cell phone users have sent 592.1 billion text messages last year, with a daily volume of more than 1.6 billion. Calculated at the lowest cost of RMB 0.10 per message, the service has generated a daily revenue of RMB 160 million (22.2 million U.S. dollars) for the Chinese operators. Thats close to RMB 60 billion of revenue on text messages alone! Don't expect this figure to stop growing as there is an average of 8 million subscribers registering in China every month. Mind boggling ain't it?
