The report suggests that the growth has been most rapid in developing countries.

Mobile subscribers in developing countries made up to 77 percent of subscribers worldwide in 2010, up from 29 percent in 2000.

As the population of mobile users becomes more diverse so do the ways in which they use their phones.
