2012 will be the year of 3G/4G, says ABI research report

According to ABI research, more than 50% of handsets sold in 2012 will support 3G and 4G.

“As the festive cheer of the holiday season dies away, the mood among handset vendors remains quietly confident regarding 2012,” observes Jake Saunders, vice president of forecasting. “The outlook will yield growth in the order of 8%, netting 1.67 billion handsets shipped worldwide by the end of 2012. Particularly notable is for the first time, 3G and 4G handset shipments will capture more than 50% of total handsets shipped.” reports ABI Research
Nothing to be surprised about this. Given that way that 3G is spreading across the world, we would be surprised if 3G doesn't take lions share this year.

PS: Here is our prediction. By mid-2013, it will be hard to find phones without 3G capability in India.
