According to its findings displayed in the online art retailer’s infographic, 5.9 billion out of the 7 billion people (87%) worldwide already have mobile phones.

Meanwhile, one in seven searches are made with a mobile device. More people are accessing social networking sites this way too. In fact, Facebook mobile users have quadrupled in two years from 50 million in 2009 to 200 million in 2011.
The infographic also points out that mobile commerce is expected to experience significant growth by 2015 from the six previous years — jumping 99-fold from $1 billion in sales in 2009 to more than $100 billion

However, the iPad chatter dwarfed conversation about Apple TV, which received a little more than 2,100 tweets.
It comes to no surprise that most of the conversation originated in the U.S. and Europe, even with the additional Japanese support for Siri.
