140 million iOS users are sending 1 billion iMessages every day

I wanted to document this one from yesterday’s WWDC keynote. I’ve been looking out for some statistics from Apple about the adoption of iMessage. 140 million iMessage users is a highly impressive number in itself, given the platform only launched last year.

(Interestingly, RIM’s BBM site reports over 50 million BBM users who send 100 billion BBMs each month — so it would appear that BlackBerry users are far more active than iOS users.)

So the average iMessage user sends 217 per month which is more than the average UK texter of 154 – yikes!

So that means that 140 million of the 365 million Apple users did not notice the blue bubbles, and therefore did not switch it off. Right?
