The Global Mobile Suppliers Association (GSA) said 772 new HSPA devices were introduced within the past 12 months, which more than doubled the number of HSPA devices in the market.
The GSA said some 169 vendors are producing devices, compared with 110 the previous year. The group's survey shows that six HSPA devices are able to transmit data at downlinks speeds of 21 Mbps while 492 are able to transmit at up to 7.2 Mbps.
The association said 169 vendors are now producing terminals, compared with 110 a year ago. HSPA-enabled notebooks nearly tripled in a year to 307.
