While the typical smartphone with the Android operating system (OS) can be $400 or more in some parts of the world, Android is also the only OS offered in low-cost smartphones, and In-Stat is forecasting unit shipments for these low-cost Android smartphones will approach be 339 million worldwide in 2015.

These low-cost handsets will likely ship with Android 2.2 or 2.3, and that could cause some fragmentation in the platform. "These versions are a good blend of features with modest memory and processor usage,” said Allen Nogee, In-Stat Research Director. The new OS, 4.0, named Ice Cream Sandwich, requires more memory and processing power that will make it less viable for low-cost smartphones. Ice Cream Sandwich was officially unveiled by Google on Oct. 18, 2011.

In-Stat called the low-cost smartphone market "Android’s to lose," and added that the market could get competitive if other OS makers get into it.
