Power and reach of mobile devices

Jonathan Schwartz of Sun Microsystems mentions :
The majority of the world will first experience the internet through their mobile phones. We sometimes forget that 10 times as many people bought handsets last year as PC's. Round numbers, there were a BILLION wireless devices sold last year, and around 100 million PC's. To that end, the odds are much higher you'll watch broadcast broadband content on your phone than on your PC - and now that Nokia (and their peers) are the world's largest camera manufacturers (just think about that for a moment), the odds are far higher you'll even create broadband content on your handset. Talk about change. Comdex is dead, long live 3GSM.
The sheer magnitude of the mobile devices out there is a big WOW in itself. Currently, most of the content is being formatted for the small screen - aka your mobile device. Maybe, in the future content is going to be exclusively be prepared for the small screen, and they might need to tweak it for the big screen (PC screen).
