The following are two sections from Mary Meeker’s Internet Trends 2012 presentation. According to her research, there will be 1 billion smartphone users by the end of 2012 but this still represents only 18% of the total cell phone user base.
Meeker reports that in the first quarter of 2012, the number of Android devices shipped surpassed those of Windows. By the end of 2013, Meeker expects 160 million Android devices, 100 million Windows devices, and 80 million iOS devices shipped per quarter.
