This week the analysts at IDC have predicted the end of the whole world - just so long as you consider Android smartphones and the rest of the mobile phone environment the bulk of that world. This revelation comes as the worldwide mobile phone market has been forecast by the group as growing just a bit more than 4% year over year in 2012, this the slowest rate of growth since 2009. The International Data Corporation have used their Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker to show 1.8 billion mobile phones shipped by the end of this year, with 1.7 billion being shipped throughout 2011. How does that all add up to the end - or at least the decline - of Android? Have a look!
