High-end smart phones and the ecosystem around them are symbolic of the fact that consumers want mobile broadband and applications that can help them connect to information, family and friends seamlessly. Thus, mobile broadband is clearly today's growth engine for the telecom industry. Telecom operators have seen huge growth in wireless data revenue in recent years despite the economic slowdown. Meteoric growth in netbooks and HSDPA-USB dongles is also an indication that consumers want mobile broadband, not only in their homes and offices, but anywhere they go.
