Report Summary:

Global handset sales will reach 1.6 billion units in 2012, and consumers will have a wide variety of handset types available for purchase. Postpaid users are upgrading to phablets, superphones, and smartphones, while prepaid consumers are upgrading to feature phones and smartphones. The phablet and superphone segments look especially promising as a super-high-growth market, which we forecast to expand over 300% between 2012 and 2017, bolstered by the recent addition of Apple iOS devices to a long list of Android- and Windows Phone-powered superphones. This report forecasts global handset sales by type from 2003 to 2017, and it identifies which categories will grow at above-average rates during the next five years. Types of devices covered include phablets, superphones, smartphones, smart feature phones, standard feature phones and basic phones.
