Report: OEMs say goodbye to big growth

According to a recent report from Informa Telecoms & Media global handset sales will reach 1.2 billion by 2011, however 2006 will be the last year for massive growth in the sector. Starting in 2007, mobile handset growth will slow dramatically since saturation in developed markets will begin to balance out the growth in emerging regions. The number of units moved will still make the sizable increase from 814.4 million at the end of 2005 to 1.2 billion by 2011.
