Wireless Data Rules

Hey, go figure, IDC thinks wireless data is hot. The research firm said wireless data sales in the fourth-quarter were US$1.6-billion in the U.S., or 5.8% of total revenue, fueled by SMS and mobile e-mail. Sprint leads the market with 10% of its $61 ARPU coming from data. In Canada, Rogers expects data revenue - led by the Blackberry - will reach 10% well before its 2006 target. The strong potential of wireless data and the emergence of new devices is also encouraging investment in the sector. Sorrent, which makes mobile games, just scored US$20 million in private equity. Sorrent has partnerships with 90 carriers around the world.
