The popularity of cellphones is well known but the speed at which smartphones have overtaken traditional mobile phones is remarkable. That transformation is brought into focus in research by IDG Global Solutions (IGS). In a worldwide survey of more than 21,000 IT, business, and consumer users, IGS found that 77% use a smartphone for business and/or personal use. The smartphone is also replacing single use devices.
