SMS bigger than movies, video and software


Tomi ahonen blogged about this over at forumoxford. If you have other numbers in this context, please let me know

Total SMS revenues in 2005 were about 75 Billion USD. To put it in context, Hollywood box office is a bit below 30 B USD. Global music industry revenues are about 35B. Videogaming, consoles and all software are about 40. And the total value of all laptop computers sold in 2005 was about 65 B USD. SMS alone earns more than any of those industries…. And SMS is still over 90% profit. Do we love this industry or what?
