China Mobile, China Unicom, and China Telecom began 3G deployment in 2007, and subsequently developed terminals and 3G business brands with value-added services. All three began commercial trials in early 2009 and, beginning on May 17, began to officially roll out 3G services.

There is, however, a large gap between the current number of 3G subscribers and 3G terminal shipments. To provide a fuller understanding of the current status and future development trends of China's 3G industry, the author interviewed specialists from several parts of the industry, including operators, netbook vendors, chipset vendors, OEM vendors, and handset vendors. Using this research, the report first outlines the current status of the market, then discusses the gaps between operator goals and the current status, and analyzes current market problems. It then discusses the 3G evolution plans and 3G service strategies of China's operators. Finally, it provides 3G terminal and subscriber forecasts based on our analysis.
