Does 6 billion sound like the kind of figure you'd expect for internet0connected devices,l or is it a bit more or a bit less than you'd expect?

That means you expect each person on earth to have one equivalent. I was expecting more though. Say 10 billion as everything I have in this house is hooked to the web. Everything and it is scary as if someone hacks into the network, they can "read" my life.

As per this column I posted a couple of days ago, they estimate 50 billion entities on the IoT by 2020 -- so if we assume a cross between a linear and an exponentail growtrh curve, I'd say 6 billion is reasonable around now.

I agree that I have a bunch of entities connected to the net already, but there are a lot of pepole out there who don't have any, so I'm assuming it all ballances out.

6 billion does seems about. World population is about 7 billion now. US is about 320 mill.

I figure I'm on the upper side of the spectrum with a household of 4 and about 15 devices.

If you count my share of devices at work, you get may another 10 more?

So 25 X 300mill ~ 7.5 billion. But that's if everyone in the US was me.

Asia has 4.2B, europe has .7B  That's a lot more people than the US. Don't know what their "per person average" is but it's got to be close to 1, I would think.

So I would think that may be on the low side.

This is a very good news, devices connected over internet along with support for software/firmware upgrade over internet will be making a very good advancement in device's usability and effectiveness.

Direct Connections Only?

I'm thinking this is couting only devices directly connected to the Internet and not counting things like sensors and controllers which connect via a gateway or other aggregation device. If you counted smart sensors/controllers that can be pinged from the internet the number would go up dramatically...

"The need for always-on, always-connected access continues to push consumers toward more sophisticated devices."

True!...Going forward, the need for "always-connected" would be a key factor...especially for the future IoT world. Is there any prediction about how the data speed is going to increase in next five years and what are the infrastructural changes envisaged?

Fairly good analysis. The numbers make sense. That said, if the developing world picks up steam, we can close to double digits in billions by 2016

That is a very positive aspect of this. You can have the whole global ecosystem in one place.The risk is this - will these systems work when there is no power. Imagine if your toilet cannot flush because Comcast is down!
