The report looks at the reasons behind the creation of the ecosystem, including the improved User Interface of the new generation of smartphones, the introduction of new high speed mobile networks and the emergence of bundled and flat rate pricing with handset subsidies -- in return for long term Pay Monthly contracts -- in developed markets.

The report examines the latest smartphone innovations including the Apple iPhone 4 and the Google Nexus and looks at the rise of the App Store. It examines the business models being offered by the main mobile OS standards. It provides examples of MNO pricing and examines the strategy being employed by the MNO to ensure that it still remains relevant in the provision of content services over the smartphone device in response to the rise of the smartphone brand.

The report also provides a global subscriber forecast for the Android mobile OS and the Apple iOS standards from the end of 2010 to the end of 2013, with a similar forecast and market share projection for all of the major mobile OS standard providers (including RIM (BlackBerry), Microsoft Windows Mobile and Nokia Symbian) as well as Android and Apple over the 3 year period.
