Analyst: Apple has placed an order for 10 million 3G-enabled iPhones

While he doesn't give a specific timeframe for its release, Dulaney says Apple has moved up its iPhone version 2 release "mainly to help spur on iPhone uptake in places like Europe, where slow sales have been attributed to the phone's distinct lack of 3-Gness," the article adds.

According to [url=http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c84672]Research and Markets[/url] report, there are currently close to 300 million subscribers to 3G technologies worldwide. Finally, after more than five years of waiting, the business case for 3G is beginning to build and most 3G deployments now rollout smoothly in contrast to the many problems experienced in early years. Research & Markets notes that the main objective of 3G systems is to provide a more robust network with a range of data and multimedia services.

The research firm says that we're now are finally seeing a more rapid rollout of 3G services, as it becomes increasingly important for mobile operators to begin to tap into these new revenue streams, since there are not many other growth markets open to them. And, heck, some companies are already eyeing the evolution of 3G to 4G.
