About This Report

 

NBI/Michael Sone Associatesí Canadian Mobile Wireless Device and Network Equipment Market Report, 2005 Edition is the companion to our Canadian Mobile Wireless Communications Services Market Report. The reports remain the most comprehensive studies published on this industry, examining in detail, for both the equipment and service segments, topics as market size and growth, distribution strategies, product development, pricing, technology issues and usage patterns. Section 1 of this report consists of a detailed executive summary that provides an overview of the industry in Canada as well as an analysis of the key elements that will define the future. Sections 2 through 4 are devoted to the traditional handset and hybrid sectors with reference to the latest technologies and the equipment vendorsí particular strategies. Prominence is given to detailed profiles of the major device manufacturers and discussions on their activities and future plans as the industry moves toward the next generation (3G) of wireless communications. This is followed in Section 5 with a discussion on telematics, while Section 6 rounds out the report with an update on the products and activities of the major infrastructure manufacturers.

Six exhibits and one figure that provide shipment and installed base data for device manufacturers, including projections to 2007 and segmentation by technology, support the substantive and comprehensive discussion. The handset shipment data contained therein is the result of exhaustive research and is, in our opinion, the best available view anywhere of the Canadian market, notwithstanding what we believe to be variations in the accounting practices of the manufacturers.
