Global “Superphone” shipments to reach 100 million units by 2015

Analyst Alex Spektor at Strategy Analytics said that “We define a superphone as a high-end smartphone with a supersized display above 4 inches and a superfast processor greater than 1GHz.”. In their latest report Strategy Analytics stated the total amount of worldwide “superphone” shipments will reach 100 million units by 2015 (this represents a growth of 550%).

Wasn’t it a few months ago that Google came out with their Nexus One which was called the “Superphone”. This had a 3.7 inch display and a 1GHz processor but I guess it doesn’t qualify. For us Canadians to contribute to this number we’ll have to sell a great amount of the Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant, Captivate and the upcoming Motorola Droid X.
