4B + 1M = Hyperconnectivity

The number of wireless phones worldwide just crossed the 4 billion mark. Maybe 10% of these are currently connected to the Internet, but this is going to go way up, led by developments from Nortel and others.

How about another milestone?

There are now 1 million industrial robots, with the highest density in Japan with 295 robots for every 10K workers in manufacturing. Roughly, a third of these are in the automotive industry (they may be on paid leave!). The next nearest countries are Singapore, South Korea and Germany, each with between 163-169.

Two radically different forms of connectivity--- one hyperconnected world.
