2 Billion Smartphone Users by the End of 2015

smartphone “Mobile phones have become ubiquitous in today’s society and it’s not surprising to know that 1 in 5 people in the world have smartphones. By the end of 2015, there will be 2 billion smartphone users in the world. That means a quarter of the entire human population on earth has the means to be connected to the internet anytime, anywhere.
Smartphones have also become mini-TVs with larger and more high-definition screens. In 2014, 53% of all video was viewed on mobile. That figure will rise to 69% by 2018. People will be on the train watching their TV shows or they will be following the live stream of the Giants vs. Dodgers at AT&T Park. People are now more keen to watch what they want when they want it. It’s the same thing for broadcasters – they can now broadcast video content from wherever they are through their smartphones.”
