I thougth you all might enjoy this article from The Economist on the rise of the smartphone and its impact on society and technology. There are now 2 billion people using smartphones and this is set to double to 4 billion by the end of the decade.

Btw, also an interesting figure is that Apple is making 89% of the smartphone profits worldwide.

To get an idea how much time people will then spend on their smartphones it helps to look at todays young people: the chart shows that they report much more use during all times of the day than older generations. In total, according to Ofcom, the British telecoms regulator, those aged between 16 to 24 years use their device nearly four hours a day.
