Fascinating Facts of Global Cell Phone Use

Since the advent of cell phones, each year has seen expanded use of phones, expanded cellular networks and an increased demand for the latest and greatest technology. Phones are small and simple, and their use is nearly ubiquitous around the world. They have become so common that it is easy to overlook the proliferation of phones and just how popular they are. It is also interesting to consider how much they have changed the world we live in.

On a global scale, the number of phones is vast and it is incredible to consider the cumulative materials used, the total number of minutes spoken each year, the total weight of cell phones around the world and more. Considering these cell phone statistics alongside tangible measures such as national GDPs, the weight of a blue whale, the distance to the International Space Station and more, paints an interesting portrait of the era we live in.
