Shipments of converged smart mobile devices, namely smart phones and wireless handhelds, grew from 3.6 million in H1 2004 to 9.6 million in H1 2005, representing a 170% year-on-year rise. To put this in perspective, the EMEA mobile phone market excluding these converged smart mobile devices rose by only 11% over the same period."</i><br /><br />If the new crop of Smartphones that are coming down the pipe is any indication I think the trend is clear now.
