What Will be the Future of the Technology Made Famous by BlackBerry?

By 2011 over 16% of worldwide active e-mail mailboxes will be accessed with a wireless push e-mail solution

By 2011 over 16% of worldwide active e-mail mailboxes will be accessed with a wireless push e-mail solution. That, according to a recent report by The Radicati Group on the future of the technology made famous by Blackberry. Right now, mind you, the percentage of worldwide active e-mail mailboxes accessed by wireless push e-mail is just 1%.

The study finds that wireless e-mail is becoming increasingly popular, due to the fact that a large number of the global workforce is becoming increasingly more mobile. The technology allows users to instantly view and respond to e-mail as soon as it arrives, which results in gains in productivity, and cuts response times for decision makers.

It looks at the market as comprised of three key segments: Wireless E-mail Solutions, Wireless OS Platforms, and Wireless E-mail Devices. It provides market size, vendor installed base and revenue market share, four-year forecasts, and much more.

Veteran NBC journalist Gary Krakow has recently pointed out that lack of an enterprise e-mail solution is the current main shortcoming of Apple's iPhone.
