This IDC study offers a 2012?2016 mobile phone forecast for the Canadian market. In particular, the study answers two questions: Where does the overall mobile phone market stand today, and what does the future hold? This document includes:
- Installed base and shipments by overall market, by device type, and by smartphone platform
- Analysis of market developments and strategies that are driving change in the smartphone landscape
- How mobile device growth compares with other mobile and nonmobile devices
- Implications for key stakeholders including OEMs, carriers, and end users
"The fact that there are now more smartphones shipped and installed in the Canadian market than feature phones speaks volumes about where the industry is headed," says Krista Napier, senior analyst for Mobility at IDC Canada. "As feature phones gear down, smartphones are ramping up, which is forcing change among OEMs, vendors, carriers, and end users and is changing the mix of leading vendors in the game."
