Smart Device Statistics: 1.2 Billion Devices To Be Sold In 2013November 7, 2012 3:37 pm
And 821 million this year. (Source) No doubt these are huge numbers. Let us try and digest these numbers.
1. There are already over a billion android devices on the planet
2. iOS devices must be around 400 million or thereabouts
Assuming only connected people are buying these devices, that takes us to a population of 2 billion. We are already at an average of one device per person. (average is the wrong metric, but there is no other way to size this up)
Note how we ignored everyone else (RIM, Nokia, MS) in these numbers.
