The Cellphone Invasion

Just saw a rather scary newspaper clip - don't know which paper it comes from. According to the Mobile Data Association there are now more mobile phones than people in the UK and several other countries including Sweden, Portugal, Iceland, Italy and Luxemburg. Can't find this on the MDA web site, which seems to be mostly members only. if anyone wants to check it out.

While I suspect that a proportion of these are old phones which people aren't using, it does seem a little bizarre. If this were to turn up in (for example) Doctor Who it would be evidence of an invasion by telephone-shaped replicators or something. And unlike the theory that cats rule the world, I for one will NOT welcome these particular alien masters...
