The relationship between a cell phone and its owner is not to be taken lightly, and as 'The World of Mobile Phones' indicates, more and more people around the globe are relying on their mobile devices for entertainment, social media, and connectivity to the outside world.

Created by So Mobile, the infographic shares surprising statistics about cell phone usage, from the percentage of "sexters" in the USA, to the number of texts China sends each day (a whopping 2.7 billion). While most people I know have trouble keeping track of their one cell phone, The World of Mobile Phones shows that many people in Russia, Saudi Arabia, Italy, Brazil, and certain other countries actually own several mobile devices.

It's no surprise that China's population puts it in first place for cell phone ownership, but the popularity of mobiles in other parts of the world shown by The World of Mobile Phones is eye-opening.
