Brits heart text messaging

If you thought that us silly American's enjoyed the ease in SMS then this bit of news probably won't surprise you. The folks across the pond text message like maniacs. The magic number is 1 billion per week. Do they ever even talk to each other in person or on the phone anymore ?

Up 25% from a year ago, and up from 1 billion text's per year in 1999 it doesn't seem to be letting up. Ease of use and price seem to be the largest factors for this staggering number. Prices have always been on the high side for mobile carriers in Europe and this may be the leading reason.
