Internet Users Top
Buffalo Grove IL, March 21, 2002-
The wireless Internet was a disappointment in 1999 and 2000 due to unrealistic expectations in W. Europe and USA. However, the wireless Internet has lived up to expectations in Japan and Korea. Similar success is expected in other regions, but on a slower schedule.
"The wireless Internet will take off when always-on service and useful content for the small displays of wireless devices are available," says Dr. Egil Juliussen, the author of the report. "The rapid take off will be due to millions of "dormant" or web-enabled cell phones that are only used for voice services. As the wireless Internet user experience improves, an increasing portion of the dormant web phones will become active wireless Internet devices."
These are some of the results from a new market research report by eTForecasts. The report compiles and forecasts the number of Internet users for over 50 countries and major regions of the world and includes projection for 2002-2007.
