78 million SMS Votes for American Idol
By identity on May 23, 2008
AT&T announced yesterday that "the company has shattered its text messaging record of 64.5 million by generating more than 78 million messages this season of 'American Idol' -- the most popular show on television."
My family contributed substantially to that total. Thank heavens for unlimited text message plans!
So, at least for now, SMS is still the reigning "killer application" for mobile telephony.
