The intellectual mobile phone holds the lead on the market continuously, in addition, the new one is rich in carrying the market of intellectual mobile phone will promote the intellectual mobile phone to move towards large-scale application in competitivenessing, and will further accelerate this trend.
Study analyst Roberta Cozza lady to represent in Gartner seat of honor: “The global intellectual mobile phone sales volume accounts for 23.6% of the overall sales volume in the first quarter of 2011, increase by 85% compared with the same period of last year. Seeing that manufacturers announce some advanced mobile phones introduced to postpone till just outloading in the second quarter in the first quarter, otherwise this proportion may be higher. We think some consumers delay buying in order to wait for the mobile phone of these types to go on the market. ”
In general, the earthquake of Japan and tsunami impact on market of mobile communication equipment are lighter than the ones that expect at first. At present, finished stock and assembly stock probably all around that probably have six to seven weeks on the channel. Gartner is expected, manufacturers would glide the sale of the channel in the second quarter of 2011, and the sale of consumers will be fair.

Will have already limited the production and stopped production soon because of the second generation of iphone cell-phone on the market of smuggled goods at present, the source of goods was reduced, the price relatively rose slightly last month too.
The sales volume of 3G mobile of the smuggled goods has not risen
3G mobiles are nearly all WCDA rules on the market of smuggled goods of Shanghai at present, and 3G network of UNICOM happens to be WCDMA network, buy and use the 3G mobile of smuggled goods, only need to change a 3G card of UNICOM, can enter ” 3G era ” directly used after a verb to indicate the completion of an action. Some telecommunication analysts think, after UNICOM starts 3G, will drive a wave of quotations of 3G mobile of smuggled goods.
But the fact is not like this. There is washing the seller silvia of the treasure to tell reporters of entity’s shop in some digital sales fields of Wujiao Court, the sale of network shop and entity shop has not obviously increased in these days. “What UNICOM 3G business starts at present is trying commercially after all, only open to friendly experience user recruiting it, even if you have a 3G mobile of a part of smuggled goods, can not apply for 3G card, still can’t enjoy 3G service at present. ”
The more important thing is smuggled goods 3G mobile after sale to have no guarantee. Eye the intersection of West Road and the intersection of ever-bright city and the intersection of communication and shopkeeper of city tell reporter whether buy iphone cell-phone, write out the receipt without, for the invoice in the intersection of he and there clearly day, Apple will not offer any after-sale service, even ” shop security ” of the hotel owner Do not have.

Both sides have also carried on the discussion on next gradual progress TD-LTE of TD except discussing in TD chip cooperation. It is reported, unite, send department, in at B3G, the intersection of 4G cell-phone and chip research and develop, span WiMAX and the intersection of TD-LTE and two kinds of rules formally.
Wang JianZhou hopes to unite the hair department and act TD important role
Wang JianZhou points out in lecturing yesterday, ” 3G was terminal to lack short was a bottleneck at present now, the more important thing is chip, unite, it sends departments to be very much characteristic at the intersection of chip and design in being terminal, so, unite and take place the department and play an important role in our 3G development. ”
“Chip make, enter problem solved to want, manufacturer of mobile phone, already, manufacturer take chip can work it out Mobile quickly, the problem happening at present, the majority is a chip question, it is not own question of the mobile phone, we place on him tallly to expect, develop a lot of in 2G era and can’t say it is most advanced, but is most suitable for the chip that the market, manufacturer welcome, hope to unite the hair department and produce the result in TD 3G mobile, only the chip price has gone down, the mobile phone price will go down. ” Wang JianZhou says.
Wang has shown, TD intellectual mobile phone price that the continent introduced is too high before building cosmos, the market accepts the intensity is not very ideal. Hope to cooperate with industry of Taiwan, introduce about a thousand yuan of intellectual mobile phones. The substantial decrease of the terminal cost, depend on the offering of key chip and whole solution ability very much, and is uniting the hair department and possessing this kind of ability.
Uniting the hair department will span TD-LTE and WiMAX
In the face of the olive branch which China Mobile got out, Cai MingJie has responded actively, claim to seize the opportunity, realize ” the mountain fastness, mainstream of tomorrow of today ” Transmutation.

A great deal of scientific and technological manufacturers in Taiwan, hope to carry on extensive cooperation on TD and WiMAX with the mainland, but is limited by to the reasons of various fields, the intersection of Engineer and letter department has already prohibited moving WiMAX to dispose in China by official order.
TD-LTE is a gradual progress edition of TD-SCDMA, relevant research and development has got the energetical support of the government, operator and apparatus manufacturer. Say, though other countries should be adopted any rules and disputed for 4G technology according to the research institution In-Stat of the market, but in China, 4G adopts LTE Long Term Evolution It is the present only road. China Mobile begin, try on commercial network by TD-LTE by administration by cloth on 2010, begin to popularize the intersection of TD-LTE and commercial network on a small scale the whole of China on 2011 year. CHINAUNICOM and China Telecom would not begin to enter LTE network field in 2012.
As for at another the intersection of branch and LTE FDD of LTE, unite, send department, say, offer in time absorbed.

The research company Gartner of the market says, in the mobile phone in 2009 sells the total amount, the intellectual mobile phone proportion is lower than expectancy, and Nokia is the main reason which initiates this state.

The west shows in Milla: “We originally think that will increase by 29% compared with the same period of last year this year, this one expects until the second quarter it is correct. ” But the data in the third quarter of this year are disappointing, this is mainly because Nokia fails to introduce the intellectual mobile phone of attractive high side, and like the users of Nokia for being unwilling to buy the intellectual mobile phone of other manufacturers, this causes influence to market.
But is still expected in the west in Milla, 1/3 of the mobile phones sold on the market by 2013 will be a intellectual mobile phone. However, if the operator is unwilling to be on a price reduction to the business of the data, the endurance that the total cost using the intellectual mobile phone will go beyond ordinary consumers, this will influence the popularization of the intellectual mobile phone.
According to the data of Gartner, the gross sales amount of the consumer -oriented mobile phone will drop by 1% compared with the same period of last year in 2009, the total sales volume will be 1,200 million. Growth will appear in the sales volume of western Europe, North America and Asian-Pacific area. And the decline of total sales amount is mainly because the price of the new mobile phone drops. On the West European market in 2009, the average price of the mobile phone will drop by 10 dollars compared with 2008, to 185 dollars.
Gartner thinks, the mobile phone will be sold and resumed increasing from next year, next year’s growth rate will be 9%. However, the average price of the mobile phone will drop by 2 dollars again next year.
