Smartphone Popularity Grows to 38% of Current Mobile Phone Owners

Posted Jun 30, 2011

Nielsenwire reports that Nielsen’s recent survey showed that 38% of mobile customers now own smartphones. Of those who purchased a new mobile phone in the past three months, 55% bought smartphones. The data indicates a definite trend toward smartphone purchases. Nielsen’s May survey also shows that most smartphone buyers get Android devices, but that iPhones have shown a greater growth in buyers recently. How long until smartphones are the majority? It could happen very soon, going by these statistics.
