Text messaging is still the biggest earner for mobile operators – Research
-- Mobile message should generate US$200 billion in 2001
-- SMS alone generated US$114.6 billion worldwide in 2010.
-- SMS has generated US$585 billion for operators worldwide since it was invented in the mid-1990s.
-- Growth of worldwide SMS revenue will slow post-2011.
-- But for now, mobile network operators should focus on the fact that SMS would generate more than US$1 trillion over the next seven years.
-- MMS generated some US$32.5 billion of revenue worldwide in 2010 from a total of 249 billion MMS.
