The mobile Internet is growing faster than its desktop counterpart ever did, and more users may go online via mobile devices than desktop PCs within five years, according to a new study by investment firm Morgan Stanley.

Given the rapid adoption of smartphones, including (obviously) the Apple iPhone and a growing number of devices using Google’s Android mobile operating system, Morgan Stanley’s conclusions shouldn’t surprise anyone.
The study also points out that mobile Net growth is a global phenomenon, not one confined to the developed world, which was typically the case with prior tech trends.
