Global Information would like to present a new market research report, "The Evolution of Smartphones - 2010 Edition" by IMS Research.
IMSs report provides research and analysis on the smartphone market by examining the issues, trends, and dynamics impacting the smartphone evolution.
Smartphone shipments grew by 15% YoY despite a 2009 contraction in the mobile handset market. This growth trend indicates a rising trend in consumer preference, with an increasing number of purchasers selecting smartphone over other mobile phone options when upgrading their handsets. In turn, this trend has led to a diversification of smartphone portfolios by OEMs.

Also included in this report is information by various operating systems including: Android, Apple OS X, Nokia Maemo, Palm WebOS, Symbian, RIM Blackberry OS, MS Windown Mobile, and Linux.
