Mobile applications bigger than Internet

I read in a Norwegian newspaper today that mobile applications will be bigger than Internet, isn’t that a funny way to put it? Most mobile applications use services on Internet and Internet as a transportation for traffic between the application and the server. How can “mobile applications” then be bigger than Internet? Or did I miss something?

They are talking about how popular Apple’s App Store is, having 65000 applications and people have downloaded 1,5 billion apps. Is that why they call it bigger? To use their own way of saying this, I think The Internet has more than 65000 apps. 🙂

This came to my mind on the subject, an awesome episode of the IT Crowd :
