Wireless Carriers Bet on Mobile Mail

Business 2.0: The Radicati Group, a Palo Alto-based market research firm, predicts that nearly 123 million consumers will check e-mail on their handsets by 2009, up from just 6.5 million this year. At an eye-popping growth rate of more than 100 percent a year, Radicati expects mobile e-mail to become a $2 billion market in just four years. If mobile e-mail becomes a multibillion-dollar market, it will prove that in the wireless world, it’s the applications that are simplest to use that make the most money.
