The wireless equipment vendors have addressed wireless Internet markets. Vendors have strengthened their position for next generation wireless networking. A number of strategic investments, key customer contracts, and industry agreements have been made to further open the way for next generation mobile systems.
U.S. markets for handsets at $5.7 billion were led by Nokia with a dominant market position with 55% market share. Motorola has a strong position in U.S. markets with 39% market share in 2000.
Worldwide and U.S. markets are expected to have strong growth as penetration rates continue to increase. The affluent users in the U.S. are likely to choose to replace existing handsets with low SARs with new headset units that have virtually no SARs.
Wireless markets are poised to provide extensive voice coverage and achieve rapid growth worldwide. Global wireless markets at $103.5 billion in 2000 are expected to reach $252.8 billion by 2006
