More than half of all handsets will be smartphones in 2013
No, you’re not imagining things—everyone around you does have a smartphone these days.
A new forecast released Tuesday from the industry analysis firm IHS iSuppli says that smartphone shipments will account for 54 percent (up from 46 percent this year) of the global cellphone market in 2013. This marks the first time that smartphones are the majority of manufactured phones.
The prediction adjustment comes just one week after T-Mobile announced a low-end Android phone for $100 in the United States.
