Metric: Adoption of dual-mode to be slow

According to a new study from Analysys, growth of fixed-mobile converged solutions in Europe will be slow for the next few years. The two biggest factors preventing the growth of dual-mode cellular/WiFi service will be a lack of handsets and low consumer interest. The report predicts that by 2010 there will be 20 million dual-mode phones in Europe. France is expected to be the biggest European market for these services, with 10 percent of households expected to use dual-mode phones and service by 2010.
