Cheap devices, Africa to drive global smartphone growth


The International Data Corporation (IDC) last week forecast that global smartphone growth will hit 9.8% in 2015 - the segment's first ever single digit growth.

The IDC attributed the slowdown to dampening demand in China, but the research organisation has argued that lower-priced smartphones are expected to drive growth in Africa and other parts of the globe.

The story is too old to be commented.
