However, there’s a rather important problem with looking at the
data like this: there is no such thing as a “smartphone market”.
Or rather, talking about the “smartphone market” is like talking
about the “3G” market or the “colour screen phone” market: you’re
picking out a sub-segment that is going to grow to take over the
whole market. And ignoring the growth. […]
The whole mobile phone market is converting to smart. Apple is
taking the high end and Android is taking the rest. Both are
growing very fast, and Android is growing faster. But what matters
is phone share, not smartphone share.
