In U.S., Smartphones Now Majority of New Cellphone Purchases


According to Nielsen’s May survey of mobile consumers in the U.S., 38 percent now own smartphones. And 55 percent of those who purchased a new handset in the past three months reported buying a smartphone instead of a feature phone, up from 34 percent just a year ago.

34 to 55 is a huge year-over-year leap. What will the number be a year from now?
