One in four people in China will have a mobile phone by the end of the year, according to State sources.

Xinhuanet reports that one in five people in China currently has a cellphone, but that this is set to rise to one in four by the end of the year.

In the first four months of this year, the number of mobile phone users rose by 27m to 296m, said the Ministry of Information Industry. Mobile phone usage accounts for almost a half of all revenues in China's telecoms industry, it said.

Although phone users in China are latching on to SMS and wireless Internet, they're also starting to get into mobile games too. Which is nice. ®
