Smartphones to account for 23% of new phones
March 11, 2009
Rising demand for complex multimedia-centric applications is forcing handset manufacturers to design increasingly smartâ€š and highly personalised mobile devices.
A report from Juniper Research forecasts that these so-called smartphones will account for 23 per cent of all new handsets sold per annum by 2013. Driving interest in smart phones will be the proliferation of online stores selling specialised applications that will make these devices better suited to individual users needs.
