We'd been noticing that our friends were using text messaging a lot more than they used to, but since we're not the
types to extrapolate from our own experiences, we couldn't tell how widespread texting had really become. Now
confirming our suspicions is a new study which says that the US is finally starting to catch up with Europe and Asia
when it comes to text messaging, and that now more than one-third of cellphone subscribers send text messages. The one
metric they do leave out is the volume of text messages sent every year, and we'll bet that it's still way, way higher
in Europe than it is here.
