No wonder China will one day rule the world


China’s online population rose to 457 million in 2010 as use of mobile phones to surf the Web spread rapidly, an industry group reported Wednesday.

China’s population of Internet users – a group more than 50 per cent larger than the whole U.S. population – grew 19 per cent in 2010 over the previous year, said the state-sanctioned China Internet Network Information Center.

The number of people surfing the Web by mobile phone jumped 29.6 per cent over 2009 to 303 million, the group said.
