Strategy Analytics forecasts global smartphone shipments to grow +38% YoY in the second quarter of 2012. Economic slowdowns in the Eurozone, Asia and North America will place a temporary cap on growth in the near-term. However, an improved pipeline of major new models -- particularly Apple's iPhone 5 -- will help to stabilize volumes during the second half of this year. LTE technology will remain the industry's most important segment, with shipments rising tenfold in 2012. This extensive published report -- available to clients of our Wireless Device Strategies (WDS) service -- forecasts global handset shipments by region, by technology and by device type on a quarterly basis from 2000 to Q4 2013. The report goes on to forecast global handset shipments, revenues, ASPs and operating profits for 8 major vendors, such as Samsung and HTC, from 2000 until Q4 2013.
