Research and Markets has announced the addition of "Music Phone Wins But Mobile Music Loses in China" to their offering.

As the energy source, batteries are one of the most important accessories for mobile phones. The Ni-Cd battery, which originated in the generation of black and white display mobile phones, is no longer available in the market. The NI-MH battery also has little demand nowadays. The colour display generation leads to wide application of Li-ion battery (Li-ion), which includes the lithium ion battery (LIB) and lithium ion polymer battery (LIP). As the most demanded battery, Li-ion covers 80% of the market share, while that of NI-MH battery only covers 20%. Moreover, the new generation of LIP is becoming more and more popular for its advantages and has a market share of 12%-14%.
