India will be huge in mobile in the next 5-10 years as well.

Re: China to Have World's Largest Base of Mobile Users, 150% Increase Over Last Year

Apparently Eric Schmidt has some harsh words for China in his upcoming book. It's a frustrating place, so much opportunity but so difficult to do business there. Fortunately, the IDN business should bypass a lot of that madness.

But yeah, you think people are glued to their smartphones in the west...in China (and probably several other asian countries) it's even more severe. People are more likely to meet new people by using a geolocation friend-finding app than by saying hello.

I miss the 90s.

I'd expect that in China being such a dynamic country. % of people using Internet on mobile + tablets is bound to grow substantially, especially as it started from quite a low base. You will get same growth rate or more in many Asian countries, just not the same population as China.

Everyone in South Korea is glued to their Samsungs .....

And again, pretty obvious China is going to have the most Internet users in the world. duh. Who could have predicted that?

India - that's a different situation altogether. Though if the 5-10 year timespan is correct, will co-incide nicely with Facebook, Twitter + other apps displaying IDNs properly

Pardon my ignorance, but why will IDNs bypass the difficulties?

Presumably because IDNs allow people to have domains in their own language?

I just meant selling IDNs (or anything virtual) skips the trouble of having to have an actual business in a country.
