Those Phones Must be Pretty Smart!

November 13, 2012

Today’s chart shows a forecast of global electronic device shipments in 2013.

The meteoric rise of smart devices such as tablet and smartphones has been almost unprecedented in the history of consumer electronics. According to mobile industry specialist Tomi Ahonen, there will be 1.2 billion active smartphones by the end of 2012. An incredible number, given the fact that the rise of the smartphone as we know it began little more than five years ago with the launch of Apple’s first iPhone. 

The smartphone boom shows no signs of slowing down. IDC’s analysts are predicting 800 million smartphones to be shipped in 2013. The tablet market is expected to keep its momentum too, with 7-inch tablets taking a significant share of the market. Notice the tablet sales are expected to outpace the desktop PC unit sales.
