A report issued from ABI Research earlier this month argues that 3G and 4G handset shipments will capture more than 50% of total handsets shipped. According to ABI, in the second half of 2011, tier one smartphone vendors began redoubling efforts to promote their smartphone line-up to upwardly mobile, aspirational smartphone owners in emerging markets.
North America's high proportion of high-end 3G and 4G smartphone sales "underscores what is at stake in the patent battles between Apple, Samsung, Motorola, Google, HTC, Microsoft, and even British Telecom," says Kevin Burden, vice president and practice director, mobile devices.
