We already knew that smartphone purchases and usage were on the incline, but the GSMA have confirmed it that by 2020, at least two thirds of mobile devices will be smart phones.

New report titled ‘Smartphone forecases and asusmptions, 2007-2020′ highlights that;

smartphones account for one in three mobile connections today, representing more than two billion mobile connections. It forecasts that the number of smartphone connections will grow three-fold over the next six years, reaching six billion by 2020, accounting for two-thirds of the nine billion mobile connections by that time. Basic phones, feature phones and data terminals such as tablets, dongles and routers will account for the remaining connections.
