It's not really a competition or anything, but the FCC just released a report confirming that as of late last year the number of cellphone lines in the U.S. officially surpassed the number of landlines. It's still pretty much 50/50 — at the time of the survey there were 181.1 million cellphone lines versus 177.9 million landlines (and it's not clear if they're counting VoIP lines from companies like Vonage) — but the shift towards wireless is undeniable.
