2. Sony Ericsson is now made by Sony, in Japan, China and some Eastern European countries. Dont know if they still produce in the EU.

3. Siemens no longer own their phone business...its been sold to Bird or some other Chinese company.

4. No other country can beat Germany and the UK? The largest GSM Market is China. The single largest mobile operator is NTT DoCoMo of Japan. Wake up and smell the coffee....our own market will soon be bigger than the primary EU markets.

5. The only phone thats made in Far east is the SAMSUNG - What about NEC, which is 3 UK's primary supplier of 3G phones? There are lot more manufacturers in the far east, WITHOUT counting the Chinese (Bird, Dopod, PanTech, Haier and a lot of others). Kyocera makes a lot of 3G phones thanks to their CDMA exposure, LG has made it big now. As for PDA Phones, the Far East rules, with HTC of Taiwan probably accounting for 99% of the Windows Based PDAs.


6. GSM Radio Tranmission Techniques and Encrption was decided upon only in 1986 and Phase 1 GSM (900) Standards were frozen only in 1990. I guess you made your money selling AMPs phones - I'm surprised there was so much money in it with so few users....especially when the phones were network locked and getting UK/German phones down to HK would have meant playing around with their innards. Its not like you could change a SIM card.

7. I know US is still way behind. Nope...they just went down a different track because GSM was basically a European standard. As of now the Europeans have to buy CDMA technology from the Americans, because 3G is basically WCDMA over GSM - GSM cannot support data speeds like CDMA can, and CDMA is a much more efficient way of handling signals. Less investment > more coverage. So you cant say the US was behind - they were simply in their own world and in the end did things more efficiently.

8. Africa is the fastest growing GSM market, not South America. South AMerica is still a mish-mash of Analog, GSM and CDMA operators.
Wowwww easy tiger
U are too much in technical stuff. What i meant was a generalistion. China is the biggest consumer yes, but what I meant was we and germany are the for leaders in First model launches. When ever a New model is introduced it first hits us then everywhere. Stange but true that even Finland desnt get it as quick as we do.
Americans are still stuck with thier heads in the sand thats why they are so far behind and now catching up. South America is more or less now either a GSM or CDMA coverage. Yes Africa is big market but the new line connections per day on a network are way behind to South America.

Anyway mate this is a car chat forum , lets talk about motors u know i mean!!!

It would certainly help to look around the topic being discussed, rather than randomly throw questions around.

Bad Boy has specified what he does for a living a couple of pages back.
