25m mobile devices by 2009

Berg Insight forecasts that at least 25m devices will be connected to mobile networks in Europe by 2009. Currently Berg Insight estimates the number as 5m. “We know that growth in the number of mobile phones is coming to an end in the developed world.

There is however now clear evidence that other devices will assume the leading role in market developments.” Utility meters and vehicles are identified as the segments with by far the greatest potential.
