APAC Smartphone Market Growing
Posted on 15-Nov-2006 11:35 | Tags Filed under: News



The APAC smartphone market is entering the mass adoption stage, with shipments in 2006 expected to double from 2005, reports research firm In-Stat. In 2006, 18.8 million smartphones will be sold in the APAC region, and that figure is expected to surge to 64.2 million in 2010, the high-tech market research firm says.

"Major smartphone makers are providing better design, better functionality, and better cost structures, thus offering better
product pricing and a long-term plan for product portfolios," says Victor Liu Zhoujiao, In-Stat analyst. "The APAC smartphone market is full of potential for existing players and new entrants."

According to In-Stat growth has been driven by continuous functional improvement of smartphones, the introduction of middle-range models, better designs, the enrichment of third-party applications, and the popularity of high-speed wireless connectivity in public and private locations.

The details are available on a paper, "Smartphone and OS Market in APAC" (#IN0602840AW), covering the market for smartphones in the Asia/Pacific Region. It forecasts market growth by different operating systems. It also provides in-depth analysis of major smartphone and smartphone operating system vendors.
