Abstract

During the last 12 months, investor sentiment toward wireless carriers, pure play wireless data companies, and equipment vendors has undergone substantial swings, as enthusiasm over the prospects for the transition from today’s voice-centric wireless networks to a new generation of data-enabled wireless networks has ebbed and flowed. 3G, the technology that would allow for streaming video, color screens and a fast connection to the Internet, wirelessly, was expected to bring wireless data to the next level. Thus, new “parts” of the wireless value chain evolved, and were believed to be key drivers in bringing 3G technology to everyday wireless users.
