FRIDAY - NOVEMBER 15, 2002 - ISSUE NO. 39

Dear Friends and Industry Colleagues,

This is my weekly newsletter about Wireless Data and Radio Paging. You are receiving this message because you have either communicated with me in the past about a wireless topic, or your address was included in another e-mail that I received on the same subject. This is not a SPAM. If you have received this message in error, or you are not interested in these topics, please click here, then click on “send” and you will be promptly removed from the mailing list.

I have just completed moving to Portsmouth, Virginia. I plan to call this my home for a while. I look forward to devoting more time to the Wireless Newsletter and to my consulting business—now that I once again have a place to live and work. For about three months, I have been traveling, visiting friends, and living in motels. This week's newsletter is a little shorter than normal. Let's blame it on moving into my new home. Please note my new contact information at the end of this message. A special thanks to all the readers who sent in encouraging comments during this time.

10 Million Camera Phones Sold Worldwide Through Q3 2002
According to a new report from Strategy Analytics, 10 Million embedded-camera phones were sold worldwide in the first nine months of 2002. Almost half the sales were in Q3, as camera phone sales boomed in Japan. Neil Mawston, Senior Analyst with the Global Wireless Practice, notes, "Strategy Analytics expects 16 Million camera phones to be sold worldwide in 2002. Three million more camera phones will be sold this year than PDAs, emphasizing the importance of this emerging market. Japan and Korea are the world's leading camera phone markets right now, where 96 percent of camera phones were sold in the first nine months of 2002."
