Music Industry News - as it happens
Source: Mi2N - January 3, 2002

The most significant technology-related events of 2001 relate to the expansion and launch of next-generation networks around the world: cdma2000 and wideband CDMA in Asia; GPRS in Europe; and GPRS in North America, says the Yankee Group in its review of the most significant wireless/mobile technology events of 2001. In 2002, operators will launch more networks. Verizon Wireless, Sprint PCS, and Leap Wireless recently started selling cdma2000-enabled wireless phones, it goes on, continuing: "On a major scale, Sprint PCS will officially launch the new technology in mid-2002. David Berndt, director of the Yankee Group's Wireless/Mobile Technologies practice, said: 'If the CDMA operators can succeed in providing exciting new applications and data services, they will place their GPRS-oriented competitors on the defensive. CDMA operators can leverage cdma2000's one-year lead time with its Korean launch in 2000'."

With respect to devices: in 2001 Denso, Mitsubishi, and Philips pulled out of the North American wireless phone market; and, Ericsson and Sony combined their handset divisions. Berndt believes, "the wireless phone market has too many competitors, and that 2002 will witness more market exits or partnerships. We've also seen too many handset problems. In an effort to launch phones ahead of their competitors, quality control corners have been cut resulting in subsequent recalls."

In the meantime, 2001 was tough, and 2002 probably won't be much better, says Yankee Group. It does, however, couch its gloomy forecast with the caveat that it believes things, "will start to improve for the wireless industry by the latter part of 2002." Overall, wireless-oriented companies will have difficulty managing over the next 18 months.
