Global Information Inc. would like to present a new market research report, "US Business Spending by Size of Business and Vertical, 2009-2014: Wireless Data, Handsets, and Voice" by In-Stat.

Growth in wireless data spending by US businesses will slow, moving down from an annual growth rate of 5.2% during 2009-2010 to 2.5% during 2013-2014, according to market research firm In-Stat. Overall, In-Stat expects US businesses to spend close to $27 billion on wireless data in 2010.
