Strategy Analytics says that 1 billion mobile phone handsets will be shipped in 2006.

Imagine any industry selling a billion units of anything in a year.

Hot brands are Nokia, with fast-rising Motorola, Samsung, LG and Sony Ericsson. But the big boys are starting to feel profit pressures it seems.

Research by the Boston-based consultancy is projecting that global 3G subscribers will pass the magical 100 million mark this month.

It also says there are over 38 million mobile phones with Macromedia/Adobe’s FlashLite or FlashPlayer on them. Expect those infuriating online Flash adverts to show up on your phone soon.
