Wireless communication device firm Everything Everywhere has announced "record" smartphone sales in the second quarter.
According to the firm, as many as 85 per cent of new contract customers opted for a smartphone, up from 84 per cent in the first quarter and from 64 per cent year-on-year.
Everything Everywhere revealed that mobile service revenue also grew by two per cent year-on-year.
Tom Alexander, chief executive officer of Everything Everywhere, commented: "The first half of 2011 was a period of good progress for Everything Everywhere.
"We are investing in building the best network experience for our customers and in creating platforms for growth."
Everything Everywhere confirmed it expected to increase its contract customer base across both Orange and T-Mobile.
Earlier this week, Mozilla, the firm best known for its Firefox internet browser, announced that it is set to introduce its very own mobile operating platform.
Mozilla said it is currently working on a new mobile operating platform developers have called "Boot to Gecko" or B2G.
