Here’s some interesting figures that I came across today, courtesy of Open Gardens:

  • 2005 box office revenues for Hollywood films came in just shy of $30 billion U.S. dollars.
  • 2005 worldwide music revenues were about $35 billion.
  • 2005 combined totals for video game consoles and software were about $40 billion U.S. dollars.

… And the total worldwide revenues from text messaging in 2005 were roughly $75 Billion USD, at a cost to the consumer of only pennies each!

These days having a mobile without SMS is akin to a landline without voicemail. So if you’re wondering why I’m not calling you, now you know!
