i'm trying to find some data about the number of phones in region like 
africa, latin america, south-east asia, china, india, ... which have 
potential ways of connesting to the web. This includes web-browser, or 
at least java-enabled phones to host product like opera mine.
While i found some data about growth of mobile web access from africa, 
east europe, and other regions, i was not able to get some figures about 
the percentage of phones which might potentially be used to connect to 
the web.

I noticed that many people are taking strong positions (either stating 
that all phones would be web enabled in 5 years, or saying that due to 
the grey/second hand market, before seing web-enabled phones in remote 
places it might take 20 years) but i can't find concrete evidences and 
data for one or the other side. So this is a problem, and i believe also 
this might affect somehow our work.

So if anybody has some data, or some clues about how we could get them, 
this would be useful.
