Plunkett's Wireless, Wi-Fi, RFID and Cellular Industry Almanac 2007: Wireless, Wi-Fi, RFID & Cellular Industry Market Research, Statistics, Trends & Leading Companies
The cell phone is the fastest-selling consumer electronic in the world. On a global basis, over 800 million cellular telephones are sold yearly. More camera-equipped cell phones are sold each year than stand alone digital cameras. Rapid development of new technologies is leading to ever more versatile, multipurpose mobile devices, including 3G Internet-enabled cell phones and PDAs. Meanwhile, wireless networking and wireless Internet access are developing and expanding on a global basis at a rapid rate. Booming technologies include such 802.11 standards as Wi-Fi and WiMax, as well as Ultra Wide Band (UWB) and Bluetooth. Telematics, intelligent transportation systems (ITS) and satellite radio will soon create an entertainment, navigation and communications revolution within automobiles and trucks. Meanwhile, RFID (radio frequency identification) will revolutionize wireless tracking, inventory and logistics at all levels, from manufacturing to shipping to retailing. These developments are creating challenges for legacy companies and opportunities for nimble marketers and managers. Plunkett's Wireless, Wi-Fi, RFID & Cellular Industry Almanac 2007 covers such sectors. Our coverage includes business trends analysis and industry statistics. We also include a wireless and cellular business glossary and a listing of industry contacts, such as industry associations and government agencies. Next, we profile hundreds of leading companies.
