Expected China 3G standard phone sales in 2010

According to research firm Strategy Analytics, Sales of cellphones using China's own 3G standard (TD-SCDMA) will grow 7-fold this year. The firm attributes one primary reason to such exploding growth to the China Mobile's push of new phones and services. China Mobile said last month it would spend 45 billion yuan ($6.6 billion) to extend its 3G coverage and roll out more than 80 TD-SCDMA handset models to address market concerns about its lukewarm 3G push.

Although the research firm did not unveil total sales estimates, but China Mobile, the world's largest mobile operator by subscribers, has said it had 3.4 million clients using its TD-SCDMA network last year when it opened the service.

So going by the above number and SA estimates,

Expected China 3G standard phone sales in 2010 will be 23.8 million. --------
