Just in case you had any doubts that mobile enterprise is back and bigger than ever, check out the latest findings from Frost & Sullivan. The researcher claims that the market for mobile enterprise services in the 12 major Asia-Pacific countries (excluding Japan) will grow from $20.68 billion in 2006 to $35.51 billion by the end of 2011.
