One of the fundamental creeds held by the proponents behind every new technology and gizmo market, including cell phones, smart phones, tablets, Sony Walkmen, 8-tracks, VHS tapes, juice extractors, tape rewinders, etc., is that their growth rate (and by implication the consumers' discretionary income), is completely dissociated with gravity and will grow at a far faster pace than global economic growth virtually in perpetuity.
Samsung and Apple continued to dominate the market, with the Korean giant selling 385 million phones in 2012, of which 53.5 per cent were smartphones, with Apple selling 130 million smartphones. Chinese company Huawei was third spot in worldwide smartphone sales for the first time in the fourth quarter, Gartner said, selling 27.2 million smartphones in 2012, an increase of 74 per cent.
Gartner said it expects sales of feature phones – ie any phone that is not a smartphone - to continue falling this year. Another reason for the drop is the weakening demand for feature phones, which possess some smartphone abilities but are limited.
So while there is an element of conversion into ever more feature rich offerings (aka margin compression), the fundamental gating factor is no longer coolness, or hipness, but the simplest one of all: the bottom line. This also means that the margin compression that has been haunting firms such as Apple will not only continue but accelerate, as the peak growth phase has passed, and now, just like in the sovereign arena, it is a race to the margin bottom.
It also says 2013 will be the year of the third ecosystem, as carriers try to break free from the influence of Apple and Google Android while Microsoft's Windows Phone 8, BlackBerry 10 and others duke it out. Alas, Gartner's forecast is surprisingly reminiscent of what it said a year ago, when it too forecast a continuing growth in sales.

He needs to die off along with most of the 3rd world so I can live high on the hog and not have to worry about sharing my standard of living with 3rd world fuckers wanting a piece of my living standard. The way to avoid tracking is to buy a PAYG mobile phone with cash and always top it up with cash.

This is like saying 'Holy shit, television sales are dropping' when people were moving from black&white to color. I might too if it just had mem card (dealbreaker), replaceable battery (bad) and headphone jack (usb just not the same). Don't worry - if demand for iphones drops too far, Obama will mandate that all food stamps are distributed via app directly to your iPhone. That and the iKiddies that used student loan money to purchase the latest and greatest over the years are now in the real world without a job. To people who know how to use a PC and want to be in control of it, Win7 intentionally makes it more difficult. Win7 intentionally makes it more difficult, as the majority of people out there know very little about PCs.
Downvote?  Guess you never had to develop software for customers that set the requirements, duh.
Microsoft has a real nasty habit of Changing OS, before they have even worked the bugs out of the one 12-18 mos old.
Every change (upgrade), is less user friendly, and hides crap from you that was an open book on IE7 XP Svc Pk3. Turns out when food gets really expensive there IS something electronic you can do without.
This is the case until empirical evidence reminds them, and everyone else, that gravity eventually always wins.
Gartner says it expects mobile sales to reach 1.9 billion in 2013 -- with a 1 billion coming solely from smartphones.

Sadly, for both Gartner, and the entire human race, what happens next nobody can see, as whatever will be, will be purely a function of the unintended consequences of the actions of a few select central planners who do everything in their power to convert fiat into wealth (by dilution). And having spent ages cleaning PCs using Hijackthis and equivalents, I can assure you that's a good thing.
Got tired of them half a year ago, but even before then, there was only one time I ever bought a phone in late 90's. I have an emergency cell phone in my car with an airtime card that's ready to be activated if the vehicle breaks down in the middle of nowhere. Which is precisely what happened with global mobile phone sales, which in 2012 posted their first decline since the cataclysmic 2009. In terms of admin control, provided that you know what you're doing, there's very little difference. After that I kept of finding discarded phones left by the kind of people that tend to upgrade every revision cycle. Under the bonnet, in terms of ring 0 driver requirement and relevant security settings, I can assure you there's a lot. I never had to spend money on anything other than the airtime and avoided contracts all together.
