Keywords:China 3G  TD-SCDMA  mobile handset 

China's 3G TD-SCDMA handset shipments is set for an explosive growth in 2010. The 600 per cent growth during 2010 is forecasted by the latest research of Strategy Analytics. With the backing of China Mobile, TD-SCDMA will be one of the fastest growing mobile technologies in the world, making China an important 3G market.

Tom Kang, director at Strategy Analytics, said, "We forecast TD-SCDMA handset shipments to grow an impressive 600 per cent annually in China during 2010. Aggressive marketing and subsidizing of new phones and keener pricing of services by China Mobile will make TD-SCDMA one of the world's fastest growing mobile technologies."

"The surging volumes of TD-SCDMA handsets will make China an important 3G market that no major brand can afford to ignore," added Neil Mawston, director at Strategy Analytics. "Companies that we expect to benefit from the growth of TD-SCDMA will include Nokia, Samsung, ZTE, Huawei, MediaTek, ST-Ericsson and Spreadtrum. If Apple eventually chooses to launch a TD-SCDMA version of its iPhone, then we believe this would ignite the market and provide considerable upside for Apple in China."
