A few set of market information released this week:

  • According to M:Metrics, the iPhone is the most popular handset for accessing news and information on the mobile Web in the US. 85% of iPhone users are accessing news and information; 31% are watching mobile TV ; 50% are accessing a social networking site, and 20% access Facebook. But in the US, iPhone usage is attached to an unlimited data plan (from ATT), this can help for mobile content consumption.

  • According to Strategy Analytics, a Japanese vendor would be the best fit for Motorola's struggling handset unit. What Motorola is lacking now is a portfolio with up to date 3G handsets (something Japanese vendors can bring in), and Japanese vendors would be interested to find oxygen in international markets (two Japanese vendors have recently give up, facing too strong competitive pressure in their local market). The fit seems logical, but ..... no one had expressed interest up to now.

  • IBISWorld forecasts that the US VOIP market would be one of the most dynamic this year, despite the economic recession. The subscriber base would jump to 16m (+20%) with related revenues of $3bn (+25%). The research firm predicts that there would be 25m subscribers and $ 5bn in revenues by 2012.

  • According to In-Stat, the US managed services market would grow at a CAGR of 7% through 2012.

  • According to Forrester, 125m Europeans would frequently browse the web via their mobile phone by 2013 (from current 40m).

  • According to Dittberner, 102m DSL lines were shipped in 2007 (+14%).

  • According to ABI Research, one out of three mobile phones would be a smartphone by 2013.
