Europe: mobile data market is growing at 20%, forecast to continue, while mobile voice is stagnant

[Marketwire] Recent estimates have put the European mobile data market at EUR 29billion with strong (20%+) annual growth for the next few years, in contrast to a stagnant mobile voice market. Some mobile service providers are seeing terabytes of data on their networks driving sales growth of their data services by 30%. With customers using their mobile devices to generate & carry more and more valuable data, coupled with the disruptive approach to accessing & using applications that the iphone has created, mobile application development and mobile data management has never been a hotter topic or busier space.

"We have just developed & launched our Microsoft Outlook and Windows Mobile plug-ins to complement the rest of our core synchronisation services which will further increase the different types of data our customers can wirelessly back up from their mobile devices" says Tom Ricca-McCarthy, Managing Director of Synkia. "We are seeing strong demand for the development of iphone & android applications from all sorts of customers and our mobile application testing services are of increasing interest to more and more developers who require their own work tested across the ever growing range of mobile devices and networks out there now."
