Of course Moto is coming out on top with bluetooth, they have the Razr phone that offers Bluetooth. I’d say that might have something to do with it.
AMSTERDAM (Reuters) – Global sales of wireless Bluetooth headsets for mobile phones rose 153 percent to 33 million units in 2005, representing a wholesale value of $1 billion, and are expected to grow 70 percent in 2006, according to a survey released on Thursday.
Motorola (NYSE:MOT – news), the world’s second biggest mobile phone maker, controlled 28.2 percent of the Bluetooth headset market, according to market research group Strategy Analytics.
Denmark’s GN Store Nord’s (GN.CO) Jabra unit was second with 16.3 percent and Plantronics (NYSE:PLT – news) third with 12.3 percent market share.
Popularity of the devices was fueled by falling prices for Bluetooth headsets as well as traffic laws in many countries which require hands-free calling while driving.
