Mobile Services: Global Outlook

This report analyzes global mobile market trends by examining carrier subscriber growth and handset sales data. It also investigates carriers’ roadmap from 3G to 4G services and the competitive landscape in the handset market.

“The global recession talks have dimmed the mobile industry’s optimism for 2009. It will be a transitional year for sure,” said Harry Wang, Director of Health and Mobile Product Research with Parks Associates. “But after this ‘survival of the fittest’ period, the mobile industry is well-positioned to capitalize on the mobility and convergence trends in the consumer market.”
