According to Industrial Economics and Knowledge Center, a government-sponsored market research institute, the Taiwan is expected to ship as many as 18 million units by 2005, accounting for about 40 percent of worldwide shipments.

MIA is expected to cooperate with OS providers, telecom operators and contain providers. "Especially, digital content is one of the fastest growing segments in the mobile information appliance industry. Taiwan can compete in [mainland] China. We will bridge the gap between content providers and telecom operators, and assist them to explore the [mainland] China market," said MIA.
