Another analyst firm, IDC, put out a report detailing the phone market in Q3 this year. While it has slightly different numbers than Strategy Analytics, the picture it paints is pretty much the same..

IDC confirms that smartphone shipments have broken the quarter billion mark, breaking the previous record, which was set in Q2 2012. Phone shipments as a whole (including feature phones) have reached 467.9 million, a modest 5.7% year on year growth.

The smartphone race is heating up – Android is the Operating System (OS) that drives the adoption of low-cost smartphones. They are especially popular in China (amongst consumers and vendors alike) and the country was the final destination of over one third of the worldwide smartphone shipments.
