Translation: Oh my God! Are you serious?! What a great year for mobile messaging!

And, it sure was a record year. More than 224 billion mobile messages were delivered in 2008 - a 134 percent increase from 2007. The increase is attributed to the continued worldwide growth of text messaging and its usage for social purposes including P2P (peer-to-peer) and A2P (application-to-person) messaging services.

And Valentine's Day also promises to not break any hearts. VeriSign expects a record breaking 1.7 billion inter-carrier and a total of 3.5 billion SMS messages to be sent in North America on February 14 which is typically a very high-volume day for texting love notes.
