Strategy Analytics is out with new study results, suggesting that global superphone shipments will grow 550% to reach 100 million units by 2015. Superphone is defined as a high-end smartphone with 4-inch or larger display and superfast processor running at 1GHz or more. Among the handset makers that currently offer such devices are HTC (Evo 4G, HD2 and soon Desire HD), Samsung (Galaxy S series) and Motorola (Droid X). Personally, I would start with 3.5-inch screens, but then again, this isn’t my research.
Commenting on the findings, Neil Mawston who is Director at Strategy Analytics, said: “Superphones are at the forefront of computerizing the handset market. Superphone models, such as the Samsung Galaxy S and HTC Evo 4G, are driving more PC-like features into the hands of mobile consumers. Operators can launch advanced Internet services with superphones to lift their data revenues, while component makers can design cutting-edge products with higher profit margins such as dual-core application processors or 512MB RAM memory.”
