I would not be surprised to see that number grow even more with the iPhone 3G now selling for $99. That is the best smartphone around for what people were paying for a Palm Centro 6 months ago.
Smartphones are predicted to grow to 38% of all handsets by 2013. That will make smartphones the category in the mobile market with the largest growth opportunity. According to the research firm, the average American consumer has had four mobile devices and has increased their appetite for sophisticated devices for their next purchase.
