Smartphone Sales Outpace Dumbphones Globally

Analyst Gartner report that smartphone sales have exceeded feature phone sales for the first time in Q2. Gartner says global smartphones sales rose 46.5% from last year’s quarter to hit 225 million units shipped, while feature phone sales declined 21% year-on-year to 210 million units.

Growth mostly came from the Asia Pacific, Latin American and Eastern Europe, with growth rates of 74.1%, 55.7% and 31.6% respectively.

Now that is a lot of opportunity for businesses expanding their operations on mobile.
