By 2013, Smartphones will double their share of all cellphones to about 20%, reports In-Stat. Global smartphone growth this year will be strong globally, In Stat says, but even stronger in the U.S. market.

"Strong demand is being driven by device manufacturers leveraging open OS device to re-invent the mobile phone experience," says Frank Dickson, vice president, Mobile Internet Group. NNew and prospective smartphone buyers are drawn to new mobile applications, even though the median number of applications downloaded for all platforms, including the Apple iPhone, is relatively modest—below five applications per user for each platform."

In-Stat also found:

* Smartphone security is still inadequate and is likely to be a source of problems for users and their employers, based on In-Stat’s consumer survey results.

* Almost one-third of survey respondents plan to obtain a smartphone the next time they upgrade their current phone.

* Smartphones with Linux OS (including Android) will see the highest growth and the second highest volume behind Symbian. In-Stat says Linux OS will outpace Windows Mobile, RIM, and iPhone OSX.
