China may soon surpass the US in smartphone shipments

According the the IDC, China will surpass the United States in smartphone shipments by the end of 2012. They are predicting that China will account for 20.7 percent of the total global market which is .1 percent above the estimated total of the US. With China having already surpassed the US in smartphone shipments for the past two quarters in 2011, this trend is expected to continue in the future. Two other emerging markets, Brazil and India, are expected to join China and the US in the top 5 due to the increase in production of low cost phones and increased demand for phones that “provide a full, robust experience” of a smartphone.
