IDC Smartphone Vendor Stats

idc.gifIDC has new smartphone vendor shipment stats for Q2/2012. After the pre-2013 growth, smartphone shipments have plateaued at around 280 million devices per quarter. However, as time progresses, the incumbents Samsung and Apple are seeing increased pressure form Huawei, Lenovo and ‘others’ who are gradually gaining market share.

While Samsung and Apple remain strong, if the trend continues then developers can expect to see a greater variety of ‘top-used’ devices in the coming years.
