UK text messaging has passed the billion a month mark for the first time.
Figures from the Mobile Data Association (MDA) show that 1.05 billion messages were sent in August, or around 35 million a day.
The MDA predicts that globally 20 billion messages a month will be sent by the end of the year. In the UK, 7.4 billion messages have been sent so far this year.
Meanwhile, researcher IDC has said the number of email addresses in use will double by 2005 and that 36 billion emails a day will be sent by 2005.
The firm said new wireless devices and web services would be behind the increase, along with more workers being given individual email accounts.
