Mobile data spending outpaces voice for first time | Mobile Forensic Investigation | Scoop.it
For the first time, Americans are spending more on mobile data than on voice service.
Christa Miller's insight:

"Global sales of smartphones will eclipse the sale of standard mobile phones that connect to the Internet but don’t have data-gobbling features such as apps... The rise in data consumption is also being fueled by the wide adoption of other Internet-connected devices, such as iPads, household appliance and even high-tech cars.

 

"The TIA study noted that U.S. mobile connections also outnumber the country’s adult population with many consumers owning more than one mobile device."

Smartphones to outsell feature phones in 2013 for first time

Smartphones to outsell feature phones in 2013 for first time | Mobile Forensic Investigation | Scoop.it
Market researcher IDC says the day when smartphone sales will outpace those of feature phones globally is upon us, thanks to lower-cost devices and more 4G wireless networks. Read this article by Marguerite Reardon on CNET News.
Christa Miller's insight:

"IDC says there are two main reasons why smartphones -- which can surf the Web, access e-mail, act as GPS navigation devices, and check you into your favorite coffee shop via dozens of social media apps -- are so popular right now. The most important is the fact that prices have fallen dramatically across the globe on smartphones. But also important is the fact that carriers around the globe are starting to deploy faster 4G, or fourth generation, cellular networks."
