A report published by Pyramid Research says that mobile data will account for 29 percent of the global mobile service revenue in 2012, up from 19 percent in 2007.

The report also said that more than 60 percent of worldwide mobile data revenue will come from developed markets through 2012, despite the fact that 85 percent of the world's population lives in emerging markets.
