Smartphone up 32% in Europe

The U.K. market strongly leads in growth of smartphone adoption over the past year, growing 70 percent to more than 11 million subscribers.

Asian Smartphone Shipments Quadruple

Asian Smartphone Shipments Quadruple
According to market research firm IMS, annual smartphone shipments to Asia are expected to more than quadruple between now and 2015, giving Asia 39% of smartphone shipments during 2015.

Overall shipments of smartphones are forecast to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 25.9% between now and 2015.

According to IMS Research analyst Chris Schreck, “There are two key drivers for the booming Asian smartphone market. First, the cellular markets in China and India continue to develop, especially with 3G networks expanding in China and expected to rollout soon in India. The populations of these countries are significant enough to drive substantial smartphone growth, even if smartphones make up a relatively small portion of the country’s total handset shipments. Secondly, smartphones are becoming increasingly affordable. As the minimum hardware components required to support smartphone features continues to decline in price, smartphones have become mass market devices, rather than luxury purchases.”

170M Smartphones to be sold in 09

170M Smartphones to be sold in 09

Gartner reported yesterday stronger than expected mobile phones sales in 2009, with 1.214 billion units, a 0.67 per cent decline from 2008. Smartphone volumes will represent 14 per cent of total mobile devices sales in 2009 (170 million), growing by 23.6 per cent from 2008 and to 38 per cent by 2013.

However, said Gartner, “this positive outlook [for Smartphones] could be negatively impacted by mobile operators’ decision to associate all smartphones with high flat-rate data plans, which could increase the total cost of ownership beyond mass-market consumer acceptance.”
