China Says It Now Has 1.104 B Mobile Users
Statistics released December 23 by China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) via TechCrunch say that as of the end of November 2012, there were 1.104 billion mobile phone users in that country, an increase of nearly 118 million people during the first eleven months of 2012.
This would mean that about 82% of China’s population currently uses a mobile phone (though as commenters noted below, many of these mobile phones could have dual sim cards, which was not taken into account in the MIIT’s report).
