The Yankee Group has released its review of the most significant wireless/mobile technology events of 2001. According to the report, 2001 was a difficult year, and 2002 isn't looking much better. They believe, however, that things will start to improve for the wireless industry by the latter part of 2002. The most significant technology-related events of 2001 relate to the expansion and launch of next-generation networks around the world: cdma2000 and WCDMA in Asia, and GPRS in Europe and North America. In 2002, operators will launch more networks.
