Smart­phone mar­ket to rise

Townsville Bulletin - - Investor -

THE world­wide smart­phone mar­ket will grow nearly 50 per cent this year and Google’s An­droid will take over as the lead­ing op­er­at­ing sys­tem, a tech­nol­ogy mar­ket re­search firm said. In­ter­na­tional Data Corp said smart­phone ven­dors were ex­pected to ship more than 450 mil­lion smart­phones in 2011 com­pared to 303.4 mil­lion last year. IDC said the smart­phone mar­ket would grow more than four times faster than the over­all mo­bile phone mar­ket as users up­grade.
