more Evidence That Texting is Displacing Talking

The latest data from CTIA: The Wireless Association provides more evidence that texting is displacing talking among U.S. consumers.

Since about June 2008 some 60 million additional users have become mobile subscribers.

Since that time, though, the amount of voice traffic has been flat. Usage has shifted dramatically to texting, rather than talking.

That doesn't mean a mobile device is useful "only" as a messaging device. People still do talk.

It's just that a greater percentage of total communications are occurring in text mode.
