European corporate mobile e-mail market to reach 13.5 mln users by 2009

According to IDC, the European mobile corporate email market will increase to around 13.5 mln individual users (employees who use either a laptop/PDA or mobile phone to access email) in 2009, representing a compound annual growth rate of 36%. Although email is the most deployed mobile enterprise application to date, it is still fairly unexploited. Even with the recent success of mobile email devices such as the BlackBerry, mobile operators are just starting to provide these kinds of applications to the enterprise market on the available devices.
