According to research firm IDC, more smartphones than “dumb” phones are being made this year. Rejoice! Manufacturers shipped 216 million smartphones worldwide in the first three months of this year, compared with 189 million regular cellphones. IDC said smartphones made up 51.6 percent of the 419 million mobile phones shipped.
In the USA, smartphones overtook regular old boring cellphones in 2011. The shift to a global majority of smartphones is now being driven by consumers in developing countries such as China, India and Indonesia.
Who out there still have a dumb phone? Anyone?
