1.3 billion 3G handsets by 2010

IDATE is forecasting that 1.3 billion 3G handsets will be out in the wild by 2010, which wouldn’t be surprising if 3G usage is supposed to increase 10 times by 2011. Most of the data from the report is from 2005-2006, so who knows how the numbers that have come out since then would change the forecast. Despite the age, a lot of the trends are still running, like how 50% of the growth rate in CDMA technology is happening in Asia and the Pacific. BlackBerrys are going to be packing the 3G goodness soon enough, with Australia apparently leading the way.
