    The amount of mobile ad spending is huge (almost half of ppc ad spending) compared to that of the US. Mobile phone usage seems to be far more advanced in Asia, particulary Japan and China. In fact a prediction made by an executive at mInfo is that China mobile ad spending would surpass that of pc spending in 10 years.
