Today when am checking the news found an interesting item telling 10% of Indian population owns phones and 2.74 million mobile phones and 270,000 land lines were sold in India in August. Also, article claims that India has emerged as one of the fastest growing phone markets in the world, with monthly sales of more than two million connections.
This could be a news; but truly my claim is even more % has phone usage in India. When I visited India last year, found that almost 5-6 people from 10 are using mobile phones; and note that all incoming calls for any mobile or land-line carrriers are FREE. This could also be making a point in the rapid growth towards mobile usage.
