PDA-Phones Will Revitalize
the PDA Market
Buffalo Grove IL, January 22, 2002-
Total worldwide PDA sales will jump from 12M devices in 2000 to over 61M in 2007. The capabilities of the PDA will improve impressively by 2007 and it will become a multifunction device with built-in Internet access, digital camera, music player, scanner and other functionality. The hardware capabilities of the typical 2007 PDA will be similar to the 2001 low-end PC.
"Phone-PDA growth will follow the roll-out of 2.5G and 3G cellular networks because they need always-on packet networks to be useful", says Dr. Egil Juliussen, the author of the report. "Phone-PDAs are showing early success in Europe and the market will take-off in 2002 and 2003 in Asia and the USA".
