Apple Watch doubted like iPhone: launch may be massive

Smartphone growth slowing warns IDC (and emerging markets aren’t helping)

Smartphone growth slowing warns IDC (and emerging markets aren’t helping)

The explosive growth of smartphones will slow over the next four years, IDC analysts predict, with Android dominating in bulk but iOS making the most money from each handset buyer. Emerging markets, though adding to the smartphone count in numbers in 2014, IDC suggests, will still leave high-end devices struggling to find as many buyers as before.
