I have been tracking market research from the major analyst houses since 2004. These days there’s much more market research available and I have decided to expand the sources of the listings and also move the market research listing to a separate pinterest style site. It’s called smartphonemarketresearch.com but also covers tablets and anything to do with mobile. The old listing will remain for historical reference.
Some of the latest research is interesting. For example, two Samsung devices beat the iPhone 5 in a ACSI consumer satisfaction survey, Kantar Wordpanel has a great breakdown of smartphone shipments across 10 main countries and analysis by eMarketer showed that younger people prefer to shop via a mobile app than a mobile web site.
