“The mobile phone user transition from feature phones to smartphones will continue in a gradual but unabated fashion. Market research firm IDC on Wednesday released the findings of its latest Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker report, and the firm predicts that cell phone shipments will reach 1.8 billion units this year compared to 1.7 billion in 2011. A sharp decline in the feature phone market will be the root cause of the stalled growth — IDC is forecasting the lowest annual growth rate since 2009 — but smartphone shipments will offset the 10% decline expected from feature phones, growing 38.8% year-over-year to 686 million units in 2012.
Gartner research predicts the enterprise social software market will hit $769 million in 2011. The market is growing 15 percent a year and should top $1 billion through 2012.Gartner's broad definition of ESS includes blogs, wikis, communities, forums, RSS feeds, bookmarks and other tools that help knowledge workers communicate, collaborate and break through the many information silos erected in large businesses.
