As VoIP services gain popularity within homes and businesses, mobile VoIP services are also expected to take off in the years to come, with ON World predicting 100 million users by 2011.

“Services such as VoIP, video, music, radio, news and instant messaging coupled with mobile devices such as a Wi-Fi-enabled iPod, and the ubiquity of broadband will result in 100 million consumer mobile VoIP users in 2011,” said ON World’s research director, Mareca Hatler, in a statement.

The research firm expects that 36% of wireless VoIP-enabled products being used in 2011 will be entertainment devices, such as Wi-Fi enabled iPods. Many of these products will feature compatibility with Skype, the study suggests, with the free internet telephony provider expected to hold 25% of the mobile VoIP market.

The study’s findings were based on analysis of existing technology trends in the marketplace, as well as interviews with 100 leading players in the technology industry.
