Now in 2005, there are 200 million cell phone users.
86% of wireless users access the Internet via their cell.
75% of households belong to a rewards program, IE credit cards that offers free miles, CVS, grocery store cards, chain stores, etc.
According to a Nielsen rating, an average household has 11.6 credit cards!!!
11.6 blew me away, but I guess it makes sense because I have 5 myself. I keep needing to get a bigger wallet, it begs the question of how much can you stick in there? No wonder why they started moving credit cards and reward cards to key chains. Pretty soon you'll be able to pay for purchases with your cell phone. It's already feasible in Boston with MobileLime.
PS: I just donated.
