Mobile equipment is a quarter-trillion dollar business

iSuppli just put out a staggering figure: Mobile equipment, including phones, cordless phones, battery chargers, mobile infrastructure, mobile and fixed broadband access devices and wireless LAN equipment such as routers will reach $235.5 billion in sales this year.

The biggest chunk of that? 3G cell phones and smartphones, which generated $86.4 billion in 2010, up 35% from last year. Yowsers! -David
