India's mobile internet market to flourish

India's mobile internet market is to triple in size by 2017 while China's is forecast to double in three years, says Boston Consulting Group (BCG).

In China the market is already worth $1.45bn a year, giving it a larger mobile internet market than the US.

The report by BCG also found that 30% of Chinese people surveyed would rather give up sex and showering than their smartphone.
