Smartphones 'the future of the industry'

3 February 2009 — 9:00 AM

The latest phones are increasingly likely to incorporate a host of features, it has been suggested.

A new survey has looked at many of the most popular devices on the market and concluded that smartphones are very much the future of the industry.

Jupiter Research said such high-performance mobiles are currently defying fears over the current global economy, by remaining in such high demand.

It was also predicted that annual sales of smartphones were expected to increase by an estimated 95 per cent between now and 2013.

Andrew Kitson, author of the report, added it was not just the technology involved in the latest phones that would develop to cater for this consumer demand.

"Looking ahead, the shape and form of next-generation devices will most likely be led by software and content, rather than hardware, as vendors such as Nokia strive to make their devices highly personalised," he said.

Some of the current smartphone options available to those recycling mobile phones include the Nokia N96, BlackBerry Curve and Apple iPhone 3G.
