[In-Stat releases new report projecting 3 billion cellular subscriptions by 2015 in the Asia/Pacific region.]

Scottsdale, AZ -- The business of securing cellular subscriptions is an ever evolving challenge. As new technologies come on line they tend to displace older ones, if not immediately, the eventuality of that change is certain. By 2015, the Asia/Pacific region will surpass 3 billion cellular subscriptions, according to In-Stat ( “Perhaps no global business model is more fluid than cellular communications,” says Chris Kissel, Analyst. “Depending upon market conditions, mobile operators can offer simple 2G analog services or extremely sophisticated mobile networks capable of delivering 40-60Mbps downlink speeds, with many additional offerings in between.” Recent research found the following: * FDD-LTE subscription in North America will exceed 10 million in 2012.

* Eastern Europe will realize their 100 millionth 3G cellular subscription in 2013.

* 2011 is the last year that 2G GSM North American subscriptions will be greater than 50 million as operators in the region move their subscriptions to 3G and pre-4G airlinks.

* In 2015, the Asia/Pacific region reaches 500 million combined WCDMA/HSPA/HSPA+ subscriptions.

* 2012 will be the peak of CDMA Rev A, with almost 130 million subscriptions worldwide. Rev A subscriptions are forecast to decline through the remainder of the forecast period. And It's worth noting that CDMA Rel 0+ and Rev B are both predicted to increase subscriptions over that same period.
