More than 1,000 HSPA Devices Available

The Global mobile Suppliers Association (GSA) stated that there are now 1,095 HSPA devices available with 692 announced since October 2007. The following types of devices are available:
  • 451 mobile phones
  • 16 ultra mobile PCs
  • 218 notebooks
  • 154 USB modems
  • 143 PC data cards
  • 101 wireless routers/gateways
  • 8 Personal Media Players
  • 4 cameras
It is interesting that less than half of the HSPA devices are mobile phones. What is interesting is to see that a dozen consumer devices have become available. The number of HSPA (or 4G) enabled wireless devices will grow to become a significant segment if the operators create usage plans that are attractive for these devices.
