            Asia-Pacific Snapshot:
    Asia cannot be regarded as one homogenous market,
    but rather one region made up of many diverse markets

    The Asian wireless market opportunity is remarkably
    large and relatively untapped, particularly as a substitute
    for wire line voice telephony

    While mobile commerce has not yet hit „critical mass‟ in
    Asia, there are numerous pilots and some early
    successes

    Over 1/2 of Asian enterprises are exploring the world of
    mobile enablement, and are in the planning stage

               APAC Market Potential:
    Despite relatively lower disposable income Asia's
    modern cities: Hong Kong, Singapore and Seoul,
    wireless penetration rates come close to those in the
    most developed Western countries

    Singapore, 80+% use a smart mobile phone,
    comparable to Europe's most wireless-savvy country,
    Iceland

    Sheer opportunity that it represents:
           US 300+ million people
           Europe 350+ million people
           Pan-Asian region (ex. Japan) roughly 3 billion people
