Press Release Summary: The expanse of 3G has encompassed almost all the prominent
regions of the world. But Asia-Pacific is expected to take the lead on the back of
strongly emerging market of China and India.

Press Release Body: The growing penetration of 3G (third generation) into the
worldwide mobile market swelled its customer base to over 400 Million in 2006.
Globally, out of all the fast growing 3G markets, Asia-Pacific is surfacing as the
most promising one due to advanced 3G markets like Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong,
Taiwan and Australia, says the new market research report “3G Market Outlook
(2007-2010)” by the leading market research company, RNCOS. The study says
that the emerging market of India and China are also expected to chip in into the
burgeoning subscriber base of the region in the post-2008 era.

As per the study, in 2006, Asia-Pacific had around 50% of the global 3G subscribers.
But based on its analysis of the Asia-Pacific market, the research has predicted
that 3G revolution is yet to come in the Asia-Pacific region and has identified the
reasons for the impending boom in the 3G market of the region.

Currently, says the research, Japan and South Korea are the leading 3G markets in
the region but soon, China, which is still striving to make its place on the 3G map,
will emerge as the big market, thanks to its 2008 Beijing Olympics. The report
discusses the technology in detail that has been used in China as 3G standard. It
also outlines the various measures being undertaken by the Chinese government and
telecom operators to roll out the 3G service in the country as a preparation for the
mega event.

Other than China, India too will add significantly to the subscriber base of
Asia-Pacific region. The country is bolstering its efforts to launch the trials of
this super-fast technology, highlights the report. The report predicts that going by
the pace of development, India might launch its 3G networks before China but it will
take some time to reach the masses.

“3G Market Outlooks (2007-2010)” thoroughly reviews the 3G market by
technology, subscribers, and countries. It examines the scenario in emerging markets
of Asia-Pacific, Africa & Middle East and America and highlights the driving forces
and roadblocks for the widespread expansion of 3G globally. The research looks into
the new vistas being opened up by the technology for related industries. After
prudently analyzing all the factors, the report has predicted the future direction
of the global 3G industry by technology, handset shipment and subscribers.
