Abstract

This paper describes and analyzes the most recent international trends in the development of mobile communications. The first part deals with the key sectors of the mobile communications market: mobile network, handsets and smartphone operating systems. We focus on the current deployment of Long Term Evolution networks and present the main factors of their worldwide success and their advantages over previous mobile technologies. Furthermore, special attention is given to the historical development of the mobile communications sectoral system of innovation, which contributes to a better understanding of the success of 2G (GSM) and challenges faced by 3G (UMTS) technologies. Finally, we analyze the international diffusion of mobile communications from the lead market perspective, suggest new promising directions of research and outline policy measures for the promotion of mobile communications.
