There Will Be More Smartphones Than Humans on the Planet
A prediction for the future of smartphone growth makes some bold projections: By the end of this year, there could be more smartphones on the planet than humans, and by 2016 there could be 10 billion smartphones. What will people be doing with their smartphones in the coming years? Cisco predicts that by 2016 two-thirds of the world's mobile data traffic will be from videos, increasing 25-fold between now and then. Mobile network connection speeds will increase as well, according to the company.
