Symbian Market Opportunities, Strategies, and Forecasts, 2002 to 2007

Creation of a mobile society depends on achieving a market-defining role for wireless Internet.  Information follows the individual, not the other way around in a mobile society.  Symbian is positioned at the forefront of the mobile society, providing an open operating system for wireless handsets.

Symbian strategy relates to supporting basic voice communication while combining a data-networking portfolio with video and picture capability.  Combined music and radio audio transmission, photograph transmission, and voice transmission capability permit increased business and leisure productivity.  Symbian represents a significant development in wireless network systems because it lets developers create applications that work across multiple wireless handset platforms.  Integrated, multiservice, next generation networks are based on Symbian operating systems (OS) capability.

Symbian device dollar markets at $189 million in 2002 are expected to reach $3.4 billion by 2007.  As this still represents the early adopter phase of the market, that is a relatively interesting market.  $3.4 billion is a respectable market in general, but to be one that has a significant up side market opportunity is very interesting.  Symbian represents a razor / razor blade business, because once the handsets are in place, multiple applications can be sold at kiosks, games for $10 and messaging capabilities for $5.
