Bangalore: 80 percent of humans own a mobile phone; Out of the 5 billion mobile phones in the world, 1.08 billion are Smartphones.



 With iOs, Android and Windows fighting to grip the Smartphone software market and HTC, Samsung, Apple, and now Nokia with its popular series Nokia lumia battling it out with their devices; apps and the entire Smartphone experience keeps getting better and better. Here is a look at a few countries that is relishing the era of Smartphone:



#12 India



Smartphone Users – 4 percent of total mobile phone users



Total number of Smartphone Users – 44 million



India is the world’s 5th largest Smartphone user base with 44million Smartphone users. The country is so affectionate to the device that it has even sent one to space. Consumers in India have historically avoided mobile internet. The reason for this was the slow speed of the connections and an overall poor experience on feature phones but that changed with the introduction of 3G. A recent study by the Boston Consulting Group has predicted there could be as many as 237 million mobile internet users in India by 2015; this not only implies exciting times for telecom companies but also presents a unique opportunity for businesses that are ready to deliver rich mobile content, games, and useful ‘apps’ to consumers and businesses hungry for great experiences on their new Smartphones.

because they don't have the Second Amendment like the United area of Jesusland does so they dont bother giving them smartphones because they too stupid like it doesnt matter cuz no one even livs their. Like if they want a smartphone they can just come to America as long as they don't come from Mexico cuz they're illegal immagrants.
