Cell phones outnumber PCs in China

There are 3.6 cell phones for every PC in China, according to the CEO of Efriends Net Entertainment.

China's love affair with the cell phone is not dying anytime soon. There are 3.6 cell phones for every PC in China, according to Marine Ma, CEO of Efriends Net Entertainment, an online dating service in China, speaking at the Dow Jones Asia Ventures Forum that took place this week in Santa Clara, Calif.

In the U.S., the ratio is 0.9 cell phones for every PC. As a result, companies like Efriends and ChinaInteractive, which may try to go public on U.S. exchanges next year, spend a great deal of effort to tailor their services for the small screens and short attention span of cellular users.
