Mobile internet technology is the focus of the 2010 China Internet Conference, convening in Beijing this week. Unlike previous conferences that focused on traditional computer network technology, this one is all about having the internet at your fingertips.

Checking the weather and schedule in the morning, and reading the latest news. You can do all of this with a single touch.

Upgrading your status on Twitter-like websites and going shopping in e-shopping malls. This is the modern mobile internet life.

Yu Yongfu, Representative of Mobile Internet Technology said "Between 2.5 to 3 kilobits per second, this is our internet connecting speed. In this case, people can watch videos with mobile phones. That's a major breakthrough for the system."

Mobile browsers are now used in 145 countries and regions worldwide. At present, there are over 100 million active mobile Internet users around the globe.

The prospects for development seem endless.

Yu Yongfu said "The number of every terminal indicates its potential to create value in the future. We believe that mobile internet has 800 million terminals, creating value far more than personal computers."

China is expanding its lead as the country with the most Internet users. The number of mobile internet users is expected to exceed 500 million in four years.
