girltalking.jpgSoon more people will be doing their talking on mobile handsets than landlines in Europe. According to a new report from Analysys, a European consulting telecommunication and IT firm, the migration to mobile continues to replace traditional landlines. Even in Germany, where landlines still dominate, nearly a quarter of all calls originate on a mobile handset, a rise of six percent during 2006.

It is also interesting to note that the Analysys study users aren’t necessarily talking more, they’re just using land-lines less.
