Watch out Golden Arches, Nokia is selling mobile phones as fast as you can fry up burgers. In a bold, yet not-so-startling release today, Nokia announced a milestone in the cellular world.

"The continued rapid growth in mobile subscriptions has exceeded even the mobile industry's own estimates. Since the early 1990's we have seen voice go truly wireless and mobile phones evolve from voice centric to feature driven devices. Earlier this summer, Nokia sold our one billionth mobile phone—a Nokia 1100 sold in Nigeria," says Kai ist m , Senior Vice President, Mobile Phones. "It will be new growth markets like Nigeria that will fuel the growth towards three billion subscribers by 2010."

Did you hear that? Nigeria! McDonald's and cell phones. Obviously, the world is getting smaller.
