As many of you might already know, the Chinese government granted mobile phone carriers in the country licenses to deploy 3G networks in the area, and the roll-outs have already begun. As the highly anticipated advanced mobile services are expected to go live this year, states LG, the 3G mobile phone market in China should double next year, growing from 14 million units in 2009 to around 30 million units in 2010.

LG Electronics has been appointed one of the phone suppliers for China Mobile, the largest carrier in the country, as well as around the world when it comes to the number of subscribers. The wireless operator is set to offer its customers 3G mobile services based on the national developed TD-SCDMA technology.
