BBC News: Young 'prefer texting to calls'.
Text messages have superseded phone calls as the most common use for a mobile phone among young people, a new survey reveals.
It's not clear whether this survey's focus was Britain or the world, but either way this struck me as news that online information providers should be acting on.
At work, our lawrence.com events calendar includes a "remind me of this event on my cell phone" component, which sends you a text-message reminder at a time of your choosing. Is anybody else doing anything cool with text-messaging? I'm familiar with Major League Baseball's text-messaging service at mlb.com, but otherwise it seems to me that, in the U.S. at least, information providers aren't doing much -- or maybe they just aren't publicizing it.
