Wireless Handset Market Shares, Market Opportunities, Market Strategies, and Market Forecasts 2003 to 2008

Creation of a mobile society creates a market-defining role for wireless Internet.  Information follows the individual, not the other way around in a mobile society.  Wireless handsets are positioned at the forefront of the mobile society, providing connectivity potentially from anywhere, at any time, and in any place.  Internet connectivity is being generated by an open operating system for wireless handsets.

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

Wireless handset shipments promise to rise rapidly.  Users will not replace handsets every year.  Some users will begin to have more than one handset.  High-end sets may be used for business purposes while other sets are used for entertainment and personal uses.  Workers at Nokia are already doing this, leading the market.
