The added value services in the country will post annual growth of 100 percent, the report quoted some corporate officials of big local mobile phone operators and service providers as saying. The officials said the service most favored by phone users, especially youths, are provision of ringtones, logos, picture messages, and lucky messages (a form of lottery).

From late 2006, new services based on advanced information and communication technologies like provision of downloadable music clips, video streaming (which allows users to watch online video clips on their phones), and information search will develop in Vietnam, they predicted.

Vietnam, with a population of 83.1 million, now has nearly 10 million mobile phone users, said the report.
