98 Percent of Mobile Network Sessions are Data
By Peter Bernstein
If you are like me, the headline was one of those, "So who knew?" moments. It should have been intuitive given how few calls I make versus how many text, emails, etc., I initiate.

Will Samsung Suffer as Smartphones Become Less Innovative?
By Steve Anderson
Back when the iPhone first made an appearance in 2007, there was simply nothing else to which to accurately compare the device.
