Every minute more cell phones are activated than babies being born.

A curious note from the Spanish blog Microsiervos, referring to a speech made by Hans Vestberg (Ericsson CEO) at the CTIA Conference.
According to stats, every minute there are 255 babies born on the planet, while there are 200 Android devices activations alone on the same time period, so the numbers appear to be right.
According to Vestberg, he predicts that in 4 years there will be 8,000 million of active cellphones (today china counts for 1,000 million alone), and that in 10 years there will be 50,000 million devices connected.
