Interesting but perhaps not surprising if this is true. The data is only from Finland, and SMS is growing in many other (much larger) markets, but it’s the first time in any market I’ve ever seen a decline in SMS volumes year-on-year.

Given the popularity of Blackberry Messenger, iMessage and Facebook Chat, together with the fact that many younger users are rapidly adopting these alternatives, it shouldn’t be a huge surprise if it is true.
