What's your idea of a good skin day? What's your idea of a bad skin day? <br/> China is the largest mobile phone market in the world. With mobile revenue growing faster than fixed-line, China’s telecommunication providers are rolling out 3G networks and providing value-added services such as mobile phone gaming to capture market share.<br/> <br/> PRC Mobile Phone and Value Added Services Industry Statistics<br/> According to data released Tuesday, July 20, China Telecom had a total of 7.2 million 3G users as of the end of June. This is only slightly lower than the 7.6 million users reported by China Unicom, but the latter has twice as many 2G subscribers, a much bigger base to find 3G converts. China Mobile has by far the largest 3G user base, with 10.5 million users as of the end of June. Altogether, China now reports 25 million 3G users, or a paltry 3% of the total mobile user base. <a href="http://quicktake.morningstar.com/Stocknet/san.aspx?id=344545">http://quicktake.morningstar.com/Stocknet/san.aspx?id=344545</a><br/> <br/> Interim Highlights from China’s Big Three Mobile Telecommunications Providers<br/> <br/> 1.
