Mobile services

Mobile services industries comprise companies whose activities enable the provision of telecommunication, information, and entertainment services, including voice, internet, SMS, text, and other data services. They include conversation services (mobile voice and person-to-person messaging), data access services (GSM, GRPS, CDMA, EDGE, UMTS, WLAN/Wi-Fi and other methods), and content services (SMS-based, MMS-based, browser-based, downloadable applications and others), targeting both consumers (messaging services, transaction-based services, news/information services, entertainment services, mobile marketing services, consumer portal offers) and corporations (messaging services, Wi-Fi wireless access services, mobile office solutions, task-based applications, sector-based applications, corporate and professional portals). Due to the ubiquity of mobile phones and the rapid development of other connected mobile devices (tablets, e-books, etc.), mobile services industries constitute one of the fastest growing economic sectors worldwide.
