Scottsdale, AZ -- Consumers of portable and computing devices require constant connectivity in order to access the Internet, engage in social networking, and share multimedia content. In fact, this consistent connected experience is imperative in today's digital lifestyle. New In-Stat research suggests that this trend represents an opportunity for mobile operators to move beyond the maturing handset market and into connecting emerging wireless device markets, like e-readers and tablets.

"Cellular connectivity will also continue to find its way into e-readers, as well. By 2015, 65% of e-readers worldwide will ship with an embedded 3G/4G modem."

In-Stat's latest research covers the market for non-traditional cellular-connected devices, and includes forecasts for tablets, e-readers, portable navigation devices (PNDs), and digital photo frames. Additional research findings include:
