More mobiles than people in Norway

I saw a news article recently which said that the number of mobile phone subscribers in Norway has recently exceeded the number of people. And it's not just the Norwegians who love mobiles, apparently the same can be said of the Lithuanians.

Here are some statistics from the article:

  • Norway -- 4.7 million registered cell phone subscriptions in 2004, indicating that 102 percent of the country's total population has become portable
  • Norway -- more than one in six households, or 17 percent of the population, last year said they did not have a home phone
  • Lithuania -- 3.7 million people in Lithuania were mobile phone subscribers, which was more than the national population of 3.4 million
No one wants landlines anymore!
