New research has forecast a dramatic rise in smartphone usage in Australia, wireless communication device users may wish to know.
By 2015, Telsyte said that almost 90 per cent of all mobile phone users will have a smartphone as their primary mobile device.
This figure is up from just under 50 per cent at present.
According to the research, Apple's iPhone will continue to have installed market leadership until around 2014.
Thereafter, though, the research suggested that Android devices will increasingly take the market share.
"Over the coming four years Telsyte estimates that more than 30 million smartphones will be sold in Australia creating a vibrant and competitive market for vendors, carriers and retailers," commented Foad Fadaghi, the research director at the firm.
Last week, meanwhile, it was confirmed that the Galaxy S II has sold over ten million units since it was launched in early 2011.
Therefore, the handset is the quickest-selling mobile device in the company's history.
