ABSTRACT
The worldwide market for voice over Wi-Fi handsets reached $45 million on sales of 113.000 units in the year 2004, according to Infonetics Research Inc. Growth will be strong through 2009, the market research house predicts. One of the most promising capabilities in this space remains a nascent market, however. Infonetics reports that unit sales of dual-mode Wi-Fi/cellular handsets, which can use either public or private wireless networks, exceeded 8,000 last year. Such devices only became commercially available in the fourth quarter. Wi-Fi capability will eventually become a common feature in cell phones, just as it is becoming standard in lap tops today, giving mobile operators a big opportunity with Wi-Fi voice, according to Richard Webb, directing analyst for Infonetics and author of the report.
